As a result of the circulation and use of counterfeit drugs, it will automatically threaten public health. On the other hand, medicines which are the needs of the community, in fact have not been able to be fully affordable by the people who need them considering the price is sometimes not affordable by the community. The problem is, how is the application of accountability to perpetrators of drug counterfeiting crimes?
