3 Adflame officials jailed for 10yrs

B-Barta, Health, 22 July: Three officials of Adflame Pharmaceuticals have been awarded 10-year rigorous imprisonment for manufacturing adulterated drug that killed 76 children in the 1990s.
Judge Abdur Rashid of Dhaka Drug Court also fined them Tk 2 lakhs.


The convicts are Adflame director Helena Pasha, manager Mizanur Rahman and production officer Nigendra Nath Bala. 
The court, however, acquitted two other accused – Noman and Afsar Pasha – saying that the plaintiffs did not mention their designations when they filed the cases.   
After delivering the verdict, the court sent Helena and Mizanur to jail. Nigendra Nath remains absconding since the case was filed against the company in 1992. 
The punishment of Nigendra Nath will be effective from the day of his arrest or surrender, the court said.
Until 1991, complaints were filed with the government relating to the death of as many as 76 children from acute renal failure after taking “Flammodol”, paracetamol syrup produced by Adflame. The medicine was tested positive for deadly industrial chemical diethylene glycol.
