An Auckland pharmacist who was fined $28,000 for wrongly providing medicines to foreigners is estimated to have made more than $1 million.
Shong Gwen Foo was sent prescriptions from North American patients and had them checked by a New Zealand doctor, David Wong.
He then sent the drugs to the patients at a lower price than they could be bought in North America.
The Health Practitioner's Disciplinary Tribunal said Mr Foo did not provide the same level of care as in a face to face meeting.
It fined and censured him but decided the case was not serious enough to punish him further.
