2007 The laboratories Roche, BASF and Aventis were fined 8,5 million dollars in Brazil. They were accused of having formed a cartel, price agreements, market sharing and unfair competition on the market of vitamins. During second half of the Nineties, these three companies would have restricted the offer and increased the prices of the vitamins A, B2, B5 and C They would have also prevented the entry on the market of less expensive Chinese vitamins.    
2006 Roche Holdings AG, BASF AG and Aventis will pay 30.5 mln usd to settle an Australian class action alleging they organised a cartel to fix the price of vitamins. The applicants in the class action, many of whom were farmers, alleged that as a result of the cartel they lost market share or paid inflated prices.     AFX
2005 Sued by the State of California for defrauding the state's $34 billion Medi-Cal program by inflating prices. "We're going to drag these drug companies into courts of law because they've been gouging the public," California Attorney General Bill Lockyer said at a news conference. For example, Medi-Cal paid $804.70 US for a bottle of the hypertension drug Atenolol. Providers such as doctors, clinics and pharmacists paid $33.85 US. As a result, providers reimbursed by Medi-Cal for Atenolol pocketed $770.85 US. The windfalls gave doctors, pharmacies and other providers an incentive to prescribe such drugs, which resulted in even more sales by drug makers, Lockyer said.     Canadian Press
