Enforcement: A terrorist arrested and a large amount of medicine seized

January 25th 2015 - www.lexpressiondz.com

According to the Algerian Ministry of Defense a large amount of medicine and other pharmaceutical products such as psychotropic drugs, was seized by the National Army during a raid against a terrorist’s house who was arrested two days before. The operation, conducted in the context of the anti-terrorist fight and the securing of borders led to the seizure of an estimated amount of over 100 000 tablets. Further analysis will determine whether the seized products are genuine or counterfeited.
This seizure illustrates the growing place of pharmaceutical products in the financing of criminal organizations and the resulting need to implement a tighter control over the sales and import of pharmaceutical products.
