Prison sentences for fake drug sellers8th January 2010
The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has said it is holding a consultation to bring in prison sentences for people selling fake medicines.
A spokesperson for the MHRA told E-Health Insider: "The consultation is mainly about the supply chain as whole and more robust measures to prevent counterfeit medicines. However, the internet has to be a consideration of the consultation. A lot of counterfeit drugs come from the internet and we will take action against those sites as long as they are based in the UK. For those based outside the UK we will talk to our counterparts."
