Breast implants: French boss sought 'for drunk driving'

Posted on 2011-12-25
Interpol says the founder of a French firm at the centre of a global breast implants scare is wanted in Costa Rica over a drunk driving charge.
The international police agency posted a "red notice" for Jean-Claude Mas, 72, over an alleged incident in June 2010.
Interpol said the notice was "totally unconnected" with Mr Mas's Poly Implant Prothese company.
Earlier, France advised 30,000 women to remove faulty breast implants made by the firm.
It said there was no proven cancer risk but they could rupture dangerously.
