Two men have been bailed after they were arrested as part of an investigation into the sale of millions of fake and fatal medicines.

The 34-year-old from Barnet and 62-year-old from Hackney were arrested on suspicion of money laundering, fraud and supplying false and misleading information.

They have both been arrested to a date in late January, 2015.

It is believed that they form the money-laundering arm of a criminal franchise spanning Europe.

At the same time, counterparts in Austria executed warrants in relation to the supply of the fake medicines.

Evidence including account books, trading documents and computers were found at the addresses, as well as £30,000 in cash.
