Police have accused Japanese couple for selling counterfeit Harvoni drug to treat hepatitis C (sofosbuvir and ledipasvir).
Husband and wife Kase were arrested for the second time, this time for the sale of the medicament to wholesale company based in Tokyo.
Kase allegedly sold Harvoni drugs with 50-70% discount.
Upon closer inspection it was found that counterfeit medicines are in the original package, but do not contain the active ingredient of Harvoni at all. It has been replaced by vitamins and herbal ingredients.
