China : Two Chinese actresses jailed for selling fake slimming pills on social media

A press article has revealed that two Chinese actresses, employed by the same entertainment company, have been jailed for manufacturing and selling fake slimming medicines. The actresses, both aged 33, were sentenced to three years and one year, respectively. A court in Beijing said the traditional Chinese medicine capsules they sold through social media were not registered with the drug authority and, under Chinese law, were therefore regarded as fake medicine. They sold the drugs from March to October in 2016, in partnership with a couple who were already in jail.
