Police Friday announced an international manhunt for a former butcher at the centre of a breast implants scandal affecting thousands of British women.
Interpol is searching for Jean-Claude Mas, the 72-year-old founder of Poly Implant Prothese (PIP), which sold thousands of implants full of industrial silicone to women all over the world, including some 40,000 in the UK.
The company, which was based in Marseilles, in the south of France, was liquidated by judges earlier this year, with Mas ‘disappearing’, according to detectives.
