IRANIAN herbalist, Prof. Sheik Allagholi Elahi, was yesterday charged with four offences arising out of the manufacture and sale of his drug that he purports to cure HIV/AIDS.

Buganda Road Court Chief magistrates’ court charged Elahi with manufacturing or preparing a drug not on the National Drug Formulary and supply of a restricted drug from premises without authority from the National Drug Authority (NDA).

He was also charged with supplying and dispensing a restricted drug when he is not a registered practitioner or a licensed person and control of publication by way of advertisements in the media.
Smartly dressed in a white shirt and blue suit, Elahi took to the dock at 3:15pm after a long interrogation at CID headquarters on Wednesday and yesterday morning.

He denied all the charges before magistrate Stella Amabilisi.
Elahi was granted a cash bail of sh600,000 after presenting two sureties. Court ordered Police to deposit his passport to ensure he does not flee the country.

The prosecutor, Mary Consolate Ujeo, said between November 1, 2005 and April 24, 2006, Elahi engaged in the manufacture of a drug intended to cure HIV without authority from NDA.
He will report to court again on May 11.
