Man arrested for making fake Viagra, Cialis

    HANGZHOU, Jan. 14 (Xinhuanet) -- A man has been arrested in east China's Zhejiang Province for making millions of pills of fake erectile dysfunction drugs Viagra and Cialis, local police said Friday.

    A total of 280,000 tablets of fake Viagra and 1.41 million fake Cialis, worth 238 million yuan (29 million U.S. dollars) on the market, have been seized, according to the Public Security Bureau of Shaoxing City.

    Wang Weiping, a legal person of the Kangdeli Health Care Co. Ltd in Xinchang County of Shaoxing City, was arrested in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang, on early morning of Nov. 16 last year, police said.

    Wang was suspected of making and selling fake drugs, police said.

    Wang's workshop and equipment to make fake drugs was seized later in Guannan County, Lianyungang City of Jiangsu Province, Zhejiang's neighboring province.

    Wang was taken into custody for five months in 2003, also on the same charges as this time, police said.

    Currently, local police and drug administration officials are looking further into the case in a hope to root out the network of manufacturing and selling fake drugs.

    Viagra is produced by the New York-based Pfizer Pharmaceuticals Limited and Cialis is manufactured by Indianapolis-based Lilly Icos LLC. Both are well-known drugs to treat impotence. Enditem
