Interpol Seek Arrest Of Breast Implant Boss, Jean-Claude Mas - 24th Dec 2011

The 72-year-old is listed as being wanted in Costa Rica for offences concerning "life and health".

The move comes as the British Government says it is not intending to follow France and advise women with the suspect implants to have them removed.

Around 30,000 French women were advised to have breast implants manufactured by PIP removed following fears over possible health risks.

Authorities there have, however, continued to stress there is no confirmed link to cancer.
