Jail term for PIP implant boss in France
The boss of a French company which distributed defective breast implants around the world has been sentenced to four years in prison for fraud.
Jean-Claude Mas, the founder of the PIP company, was also fined 75,000 euros (£63,000) by a court in Marseille.
The company's sale of faulty implants caused a global health scare with an estimated 300,000 women in 65 countries affected.
