The operation Pharmakon, which began in May of last year, started from an isolated case in the Spanish region of Aragorn. From this isolated case the Spanish authorities have uncovered a vast network of pharmacies illegally exporting drugs and selling illicit medicines with fake prescriptions at a very low price. To this day, 25 people have been arrested, including fifteen pharmacists, employees of drug distributing companies and physicians of the region.
