canada-drugsKristjan Thorkelson, Thomas Haughton, Ronald Sigurdson, Darren Chalus, Troy Nakamura and James Trueman have been accused by the US Department of Justice of illegally importing and selling $78 million worth of falsified medicines as Altuzan and Avastin brands. It is thought that CanadaDrugs.com, and its subsidiaries in the UK and Barbados, are central to a network which was importing and trading counterfeit cancer medicine to American doctors between 2009 and 2012. The medicines did not contain active ingredients. The six Canadian men were arrested under the Extradition Act then released on bail. They are currently awaiting their extradition hearing dates.
