New Delhi: A consignment of medicines en route to Nigeria from India, sent by Aurobindo Pharma Ltd under the Clinton Foundation initiative, has been stopped by the Dutch authorities citing breach of intellectual property rights of the drugs of another pharma firm.
A commerce ministry official said on Wednesday: “This was an Aurobindo Pharma consignment and it was going to Nigeria from India. (The consignment consisted of) anti-AIDS medicine and this was rooted through Clinton Foundation which had bought it from Aurobindo.”
