Executive Office to control drug sales in Venezuela
Drug companies shall have a "Unique Guide for follow-up, mobilization and monitoring" for distribution and marketing of medicines in Venezuela.
The new mechanism was created by a joint resolution published in the Official Gazette 39928 by the Ministries of Health, Trade, Science and Technology, and Food.
The mobilization guide is part of the Integrated System for Medicine Control (SICM), a platform under which laboratories, representative offices, drug stores, retail pharmacies and hospital pharmacies must be registered.
According to Article 4 of the resolution, the mobilization guide is a "compulsory" document that will be obtained through the SICM s digital platform.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
