Counterfeit Shalina Medicines Seized in China
On 21st April 2014, it was reported by a Chinese Investigating Consultancy that almost 96 cartons suspected fake Diproson lotion will be delivered from Yiwu City to Guangzhou for exports. Shalina immediately contacted the authorities and arranged for a raid against the logistics company.
PSB (Police Security Bureau) and FDA officials conducted a raid at the Zhonglian Freight Company on the afternoon of April 22, 2014 in Guangzhou City and seized Shalina counterfeit products worth CNY 65,000(approx. USD 10,500). The counterfeit goods were kept under the custody of PSB. Two traders who had ordered the counterfeit Shalina stock were arrested and kept at Guangzhou detention house.
Post investigation both the traders Liu Yudeng & Fu Ren have been formally arrested on 29th May 2014. The case will be case heard in a court – the court verdict will take approx. 6 months and arrested criminals will be in the prison till then.
Since 2010, Shalina has fought strongly against counterfeits and initiated and won a number of civil lawsuit cases. We are determined to continue fighting against counterfeits, to ensure that harmful fake medicines do not make their way to Africa.
