Enforcement: Dismantling a Colombian drug falsification network

August 21st 2015 - www.entornointeligente.com

A drug trafficking network was dismantled in Colombia, after thirteen months of close collaboration of the fiscal and customs police force with the prosecutor. The modus operandi of the network was to get expired medicines, falsify their expiry date and then sell them. This criminal organization is very representative of medicines falsification networks that extend in several countries. Indeed, these drugs were manufactured in Ecuador and Venezuela and then transferred to Colombia to be marketed in several Colombian cities such as Cúcuta, Bucaramanga, Neiva, Girardot, Villavicencio, Acacias, Popayan and Bogota.
