Cameron Brown has successfully led the prosecution, at the Central Criminal Court, of a major gang involved in the importation and distribution of unlicensed anabolic steroids (AAS) from India and Singapore. The gang imported more than 40 tonnes of illicit anabolic steroids and is said to be ‘the most prolific of its kind ever uncovered’.
One member of that gang was also linked to another gang involved in the production and distribution of steroids from an underground AAS factory in the United Kingdom.
Five Defendants were convicted following two six week trials.
Sentencing is due on 15th July 2019.

‘We believe this organised criminal group to be the most prolific of its kind ever uncovered,’ says UK’s National Crime Agency
A man who played a role in a £40m international steroid smuggling ring arranged dozens of unlicensed shipments of the drug from India into Europe, a court heard.
Gurjaipal Dhillon, from Southall in west London, acted as a fixer for the gang – believed to be one of the world’s most prolific smugglers of anabolic steroids.
Following a six-week trial at London’s Old Bailey, the 65-year-old was found guilty of conspiring to import a class C drug.
Dhillon arranged dozens of unlicensed shipments of the drug from India into Europe, the court head.
He will be sentenced next month alongside Mumbai-based Jacob Sporon-Fielder, 38, and Nathan Selcon, 44, from Maidenhead in Berkshire, both of whom had earlier pleaded guilty to their roles in the group.
