Cuban in custody for selling fake sexual stimulants
SANTO DOMINGO.- The Permanent Attention Court in Santo Domingo province has sentenced a man accused of bottling and selling fake medications at his home in Mirador del Este, in Santo Domingo East to three months protective custody.
Carlos Marrero Pérez, a Cuban national, is accused of handling fake medicines, in contravention of articles 155, sections 3 and 8, 155, sections 4 and 13, 167, 170, of the General Law on Health (42-01), modified by Law 22-06 and articles 147 and 148 of the Dominican penal code.
Medications and containers described as being in unhygienic conditions were found during the raid on Marrero Pérez’s home, with the brands Viagra, Cialis and Finagra – all registered trademarks of international laboratories. Nonetheless, the accused is reported to have bottled them for sale.
The legal authorities say they have sufficient evidence to demonstrate to the court that the suspect is responsible for the deeds of which he is being accused.
