The suspect advertised the drugs online and in print, and delivered them either by post or in person. Boxes containing four 100-mg Viagra tablets, four 20-mg Cialis tablets and four 20-mg Levitra tablets were sold for USD 33 (EUR 25) each, while a box of seven bags of 100-mg Kamagra Oral Jelly was sold for USD 30 (EUR 23), which indicates a profit of USD 11,230 (EUR 8,480) for the entire quantity.

On February 19, the customs inspectors discovered another large quantity of counterfeit medication in Skopje, in the possession of a pharmacy student, a citizen of Serbia. The bag carried by the suspect contained 396 100-mg Viagra tablets, 400 20-mg Cialis tablets, 140 100-mg bags of Kamagra Oral Jelly gel, and 80 Kamagra 100 Gold tablets.

The prices of the above-mentioned genuine drugs as recorded in Macedonia’s official medicine register range between USD 44 (EUR 33) and USD 86 (EUR 65), and they are sold by prescription only.
