No Botox charges for EDEK leader

EDEK leader Marinos Sizopoulos

EDEK’s leader Marinos Sizopoulos will not face any criminal proceedings over an alleged case of selling unlicensed Botox, Attorney General Costas Clerides said on Wednesday, according to state TV.
This was because the key witness – a pharmaceutical sales rep and former associate of his who made the initial accusations was not deemed credible.
She had claimed Sizopoulos had her illegally carry several vials of Botox and a similar drug, Dysport, that she would purchase in Greece and bring to Cyprus in her luggage that he would in turn use and sell in his dermatology private practice without the required licence.
Although police had warned her she too could face charges for her involvement she had insisted on her story.
Sizopoulos had maintained his innocence saying he had done nothing wrong and the story was a smear campaign by his political opponents.
According to state TV, Clerides has now forwarded his orders to police investigators where Sizopoulos will also be formally informed.
