Czech customs officers seized 5,200 imitation Viagra and Cialis pills in Prague on Wednesday, the biggest such seizure in years, a spokesman for the customs police said. The shipment, containing 4000 imitation Viagra and 1,200 imitation Cialis pills, was discovered during a routine check of mail at a post office in Prague. The package was sent from India to an address in the Czech Republic. The police estimated the price of genuine pills in the same quantity at around two million crowns, or more than 105,000 US dollars. A spokesman for the Czech Institute for Drug Control said both Viagra and Cialis are controlled substances in the Czech Republic and as such cannot be purchased in third countries.
