MONTREAL, June 6, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - In reaction to articles published
by diverse medias during the day of June 4, 2013, to the effect that
Canada Border Services Agency has filed 37 charges against Mr. Alain
Elmaleh and certain companies that he operates, and against Mr. Alain
Richer, related to the importation of products containing Tadalafil, a
substance used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
Mr Elmaleh and Mr. Richer have not been accused of importing,
distributing nor selling counterfeit viagras.
Mr. Elmaleh wishes to stress that he has always cooperated with Canada
Border Services Agency during the investigation and that, by contrast
to what was reported in some media, neither him nor Mr. Alain Richer
have been arrested or been the object of any arrest warrant. In fact,
they have learned of the existence of these charges via the media and
are still waiting for the summons related to this matter.
Mr. Elmaleh and the companies involved benefit from the presumption of
innocence and intend to demonstrate that they have always acted with
utmost good faith and that they are in no way guilty of the acts that
are reproached to them. Indeed, Mr. Elmaleh has been in the
distribution business of diverse products, among others wellness
products, men supplements, personal massage devices and other adult
related products for many decades and nothing in the information
provided to him by his natural supplements suppliers or in the
information contained on the packaging of these products could have
allowed him to know that they contained the regulated substances
mentioned by the Canada Border Services Agency.
