Enforcement: The increase in the seizures of counterfeit medicines worries

August 7, 2014 - www.iracm.com

The Belgian customs seized 1 511 300 counterfeit medicines in 2013. It represents a strong increase since 2012 when only 6 421 fakes had been intercepted. This important gap is understandable by the important seizures realized during the operation Pangea and by the implementation of a unit of fight against the sale and the import of illicit products by Internet.
In great majority, the seizures concerned treatments for diabetes, high blood pressure and erectile dysfunctions.
