Kamath was one of 14 people charged in the case USA vs. CanadaDrugs. Kamath had been accused of participating in the international drug smuggling conspiracy allegedly perpetrated by CanadaDrugs.
Ram Kamath has reached an agreement with U.S. prosecutors, and will no longer face the drug smuggling charge he was originally indicted with, reports The Star. According to The Star, “Prosecutors who made the deal with Ram Kamath of Downers Grove asked U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen to drop the charge of conspiracy to smuggle goods into the United States against him. Kamath had been accused of conspiring with an online Canadian pharmacy to smuggle mislabeled, unapproved and counterfeit prescription drugs into the U.S.”
According to the Washington Times, the “U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman, Melissa Hornbein declined to say what specific requirements are in Kamath’s agreement. Kamath’s attorney, Max Davis, did not immediately respond to a call for comment on Tuesday.”
Kamath is one of 14 people that have been charged in the CanadaDrugs prosecution, but according to the Washington Times, he is the only one of the 14 that has thus far appeared in U.S. Court.
