Operation Pangea IX targets Online Fake Pharmaceuticals

In June, 2016 Operation Pangea IX resulted in legal action against websites that illegally sell potentially dangerous, unapproved prescription drugs. Pangea I kicked off in 2008 thanks to the Permanent Forum on International Pharmaceutical Crime (PFIPC) and Interpol. Pangea I became a yearly event thanks to a successful coordination with law enforcement, customs, and drug regulators across the globe with the goal of not only raising public awareness to the dangers of purchasing counterfeit and illicit pharmaceuticals and medical devices on the Internet but also taking down illegal websites.
