French breast implant chief wanted by INTERPOL

INTERPOL is seeking the arrest of Mr Jean-Claude Mas, the founder of a French company whose breast implants are at the centre of a global health scare. The international police agency has issued a red notice for Mr Mas. His firm Poly Implant Protheses (PIP), which went into administration last year, supplied implants to tens of thousands of women in Europe and South America. INTERPOL's website says the 72-year-old is wanted by the Costa Rican authorities for crimes involving "life and health" but gives no further details. France has offered to pay for an estimated 30,000 women in the country to have their PIP implants removed because of risks that the products could rupture and leak unapproved non-medical-grade silicone.
