Shanghai -- A Shanghai court jailed a man two years for selling 14,030 fake Viagra tablets via the Internet on Thursday. He was also fined 150,000 yuan (US$21,428).

Yu Bohuai, a general manager of a Shanghai chemical company, had been purchasing fake drugs from a person named Xu Dong in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning Province, at 5 yuan a pill, according to the Shanghai Second Intermediate People's Court.

He then advertised on the Internet and sold 1,030 pills that had been transported by an international courier company to a foreign client in March and May 2006. He then sold another 13,000 pills in Shanghai between June 2006 and May 2007, the court heard.

He was arrested by police in July after making a profit of more than 60,000 yuan from the illegal deals.
