Togo: expired medicine racket uncovered in Lomé

An Indian company’s warehouse, which was being used for stocking illicit medicines, has been uncovered in Gbényédji, Lomé. The discovery was made following an enquiry into the activity of suspect vehicles and residents’ complaints of foul odors coming from the premises. Four truck-loads of expired pharmaceuticals, dated 2011, were seized. An Indian company, Sprukfield, was importing the medicines. Sprukfield’s owners informed police that they were about to incinerate the products. The police is now questioning them as to why they waited six years before taking action. Sprukfield has been operating in Togo’s free zone for more than 10 years and is specialized in manufacturing generic medicines.
