Ireland : Four members of an international illicit anabolic steroids gang jailed

Four men – including 38-year-old Jacob Sporon-Fiedler – were sentenced at the Old Bailey in London. The criminal network was the most lucrative of its kind to date, and was probably the largest global illicit anabolic steroid network in operation. One of the traffickers, Sporon-Fiedler, a Dutch national, ran an Indian pharmaceutical company that flooded the UK with at least £65m worth of illicit steroids. He lived in a luxury apartment in an exclusive area of Mumbai, funneling his profits through bank accounts in Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Seychelles. He has been jailed for five years and four months, after pleading guilty to the charges against him.
