Ealing Council takes strong action on Southall business offering unlicensed erectile dysfunctional tablets

A Southall businessman and his business has been fined more than £10,000 after pleading guilty following a joint investigation in April 2021 by Ealing Council trading standards and Met Police officers found, in a 12 foot shipping container in Enterprise Way, Southall, thousands of unlicensed erectile dysfunctional tablets along with hundreds of Kamgra oral jelly set to enter the market.

Ajmeet UK Limited was fined £8,000 while it’s director Mr Mano Singh Gaba was fined £2,777 last week (6 July 2022) at Uxbridge Magistrates Court.for the offences which also included a large quantity of counterfeit ‘Jack Daniel’s’ and ‘BMW’ lighters, ‘Liverpool FC’ ashtrays and stickers bearing ‘Superman’ and other trade marked protected logos were also discovered during the raid.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for decent living incomes said: “This is a fantastic result and shows great cooperation between our trading standards team and police. This is a particularly horrendous case, where the trader acted callously; pumping potentially fatal unlicensed and unregulated medicines onto the streets. Something, we’ve shown, we won’t stand for. We want to protect good, reputable traders whose livelihoods are put at risk and consumers whose health may be in danger.”

According to the council, health experts are warning that taking counterfeit and unlicensed erectile dysfunctional tablets is dangerous especially to anyone who is already taking prescribed medicines for liver, heart, kidney or blood pressure problems.

Ealing Council is urging members of the public to contact them if they think they may have been sold illegal goods or suspects someone of selling them.  Trading standards can be contacted by email: tradingstandards@ealing.gov.uk
