Six Chinese Sentenced to Death for Selling Fake Drugs Labeled “Made in India”

Six Chinese traders who exported fake anti-malaria drugs to Africa Labeled as “Made in India” have been sentenced to death. Chinese officials have offered apologies to India, but no further information on the traders’ identities was given.

The issue became a major controversy last June when Nigeria's National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control said it had seized a large consignment of spurious anti-malaria drugs worth $210,000.

Indian officials had received complaints that drugs exported from China but mislabeled as manufactured in India were being exported to South Africa, Ghana, Ivory Coast and other parts of Africa.
