A Kenley man has been sentenced for the supply and possession of unlicensed medicines, including erectile dysfunction medicines. Kim-Andre Frantzen, of Kenley, South London, was sentenced in October at Guildford Crown Court after investigators from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) raided properties in South London and seized more than 209,250 doses of unlicensed products worth more than £471,000.
Frantzen pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to nine months imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, and 200 hours of unpaid work. He was also ordered to pay a £100 victim surcharge plus costs of £2,500.
MHRA head of enforcement Alastair Jeffrey said: “Selling unlicensed medicines is illegal and can pose a serious risk to health. Unlicensed medicines can be dangerous as you just don’t know what’s in them, or if they even work. They may contain dangerous ingredients that could have awful consequences for your health. We will continue to track down and prosecute those who are willing to put others’ health in jeopardy.”
