A pharmacist of Saint-Gilles, in the West of Reunion, was sentenced yesterday by the criminal court of Saint-Denis in a fine of 25,000 euro and six months suspended prison sentence.
 
The pharmacist was convicted of extorting the signatures of two former employees of the pharmacy upon dismissal and have illegally detained at his home and his workplace, weapons of first and fourth category.
 
The pharmacist had threatened an employee with a weapon during the interview that preceded his dismissal, because the latter did not accept the conditions of his breach of contract.
 
For the second employee, the pharmacist has had a similar pressure, without being armed, this time, but in the presence of several people in an attempt to intimidate, as related by the Journal of the island.
 
The pharmacist has always denied having threatened two employees for dismissal, but acknowledged to be the holder of handguns and several 22 Long Rifle, seized during a gendarmes search of his home and within his pharmacy.
