Authorities in the north were on Tuesday clamping down on a prescription medicine scandal, after 26 bin bags with tablets were found in an abandoned building.

Reports from the north said the bin bags in Famagusta contained illegally prescribed medicine, and 160,000 prescriptions will be assessed dated from 2018.

Another doctor and pharmacist have been remanded, bringing the total arrested to 13.

The doctor which was remanded was a former ‘MP’ with the Democratic Party.
