Dead officer’s slimming pills believed to be illegal

KUALA LUMPUR: The slimming pills bought by Health Ministry officer Rosni Mat two days before she died last Friday is believed to be an illegal product.

The ministry’s enforcement unit seized 500 bottles of the herbal-based Bioflush in 500mg pills and other products, which were not registered under the Sales of Drugs Act, from a shop in the Klang Valley.

Minister Datuk Dr Chua Soi Lek said the raid was conducted yesterday morning and the ministry and police were investigating.

Rosni, 24, a part-time research officer, was found foaming in the mouth and gasping for breath early Friday morning by her housemates at their rented house in Taman Bukit Angkasa, Pantai Dalam, here.

She was dead upon arrival at the nearby University Malaya Medical Centre.

One of Rosni’s colleagues said that Rosni bought a bottle of slimming pills on Tuesday evening and was found frequenting the toilet often on Thursday.

Post-mortem results are expected to be out in two weeks.
