CHEMIST CLEARED – Saturday November 12 2011

– A pharmacist has been given the green light to keep practicing despite being raided by police over the suspected supply of chemicals to a drug syndicate.
Coburg chemist Ali Kozanoglu, who is not facing any charges, was banned from practice by the Pharmacy Board in June, a week after a raid by organised crime detectives.
The board found his conduct posed a serious risk to public safety.
But Mr Kozanoglu successfully appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal and can practice under strict conditions, including full supervision.
The raid followed a tip-off that Mr Kozanoglu had imported 350kg of AUXIN in a single year. AUXIN is a strictly controlled drug, similar to codeine, usually prescribed in small doses.
But it can be used in pills that are sold as ecstasy – pills police allege were being sold near the pharmacy.
Police say a raid on the Farmacologica Compounding Pharmacy in Sydney Road discovered unlicensed guns, flick knives, $16,900 cash, numerous empty AUXIN barrels and files relating to a multi-millionaire.
The multi-millionaire is facing charges of trafficking and dealing with the proceeds of crime over allegations he tried to sell ecstasy pills to undercover police.
Police have interviewed Mr Kozanoglu and his brother, Lazy, but neither answered questions.
But VCAT said it was conscious that Mr Kozanoglu had not yet been charged and was entitled to the presumption of innocence.
Conditions will include a ban on the import of any scheduled drug.
Mr Kozanoglu did not return calls yesterday – Padraic Murphy


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
