UK Gov’t: selling counterfeit drugs has been exposed as selling counterfeit drugs by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) from the United Kingdom.

LegitScript has already designated the website as a “rogue” Internet pharmacy in late 2008.

The BBC news article reported that:

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said a couple in their 60s were being questioned. It said the drugs were the “tip of the iceberg” of an expected multi-million-pound illegal online medicine business. The raids, carried out with help of Staffordshire Police, resulted from an MHRA investigation into the website which sells popular prescription drugs.

The Internet pharmacy had claimed it’s products were legitimate:

All products that are prescribed by our European doctors and dispensed by our fully qualified pharmacies are genuine products.

LegitScript had designated this UK-based Internet “pharmacy” as a rogue several months ago, based on that fact that it did not require a valid prescription, and offered to import prescription-only drugs into the United States in violation of federal law.
