The police of Bangkok detained an Egyptian national, Mogi Nir Saki, who was trying to take a large batch of Viagra pills from Thailand to Greece. The “man-power” pills were hidden in his luggage, and they were apparently meant for sale in Europe. The “Viagra vendor” was trying to convince the customs attendants that he had purchased 16.500 pills in a legal way and was taking them all home for his friends and himself. However, he failed to present any of the documents requisite for arranging the transportation of such freight. All the pills, which cost $200.000 in total, were confiscated, a considerable fine was taken from their owner (the sum was not exposed by the Thailand authorities), and he was expelled from the country.
