July 23, 2013
A man who was convicted of an online scam selling products that claimed to 'kill' the HIV virus has been sentenced to 240 hours community service.
Admare Jinga used his base in Belfast to set up a company that advertised and distributed products overseas, particularly to his native Zimbabwe.
In June, he was found guilty of fraud by false representation.
He had already admitted a second charge of marketing medicines for human use without proper authorisation.
The 31-year-old University of Ulster graduate was sentenced in Belfast on Tuesday.
The case against him was taken by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
