129 - that's how many proceedings concerning pharmaceutical offenses related to the illegal trading of medicines the General Pharmaceutical Inspectorate has been involved in over the past months. Of the notices of suspicion of crime sent by the GIF, as well as reports forwarded to the prosecutor's office and law enforcement agencies, the most frequent cases concern the sale of drugs over the Internet and the issuance of falsified e-prescriptions.

Cases over the past nine months of illegal sales of medicines through online stores and social networks most often involved agents not authorized for marketing in Poland and so-called parapharmaceuticals, i.e. products illegally attributed to the properties of a drug, such as food products, herbal preparations, dietary supplements, plant protection products, products of so-called natural medicine, minerals, parts or secretions of animals.
