Cialis fakes maker sentenced in London

A Cialis fakes operation busted last summer has earned a University College London lecturer and an accomplice some jail time. The entrepreneurial Chistiaan Winkel, who taught organic chemistry before resigning to start the fakes-making operation, got 40 months for his start-up venture before it actually got going.

Winkel, a Dutch national, had imported drug ingredients and a tablet press from China. Stakeholders in his operation included girlfriend Yuly Sandoval Mora and Safa Ba Seidi, who acted as logistics director. Seidi was sentenced to 21 months. Mora received a suspended sentence.

Police and regulators busted the operation before the counterfeits made it to the street. The lecturer was caught while seeking dealers for his product; in his search, he contacted undercover police officers and made his pitch for Cialis C20.
