A former contender for the leadership of UKIP who pioneered a ‘cancer cure’ has been jailed for 15 months.
David Noakes, 65, pleaded guilty to money laundering and manufacturing and supplying and selling an unlicensed medicine during the trial at Southwark Crown Court.
The CEO of Guernsey-based Immuno Biotech Ltd was accused of illegally making and distributing GcMAF globally from the United Kingdom.
In July we reported on David Icke.com an interview in which Noakes claimed that the human protein was ‘the body’s way of becoming cancer free’ and had produced a lot of success stories over 25 years during which he employed 27 staff and treated 11,500 patients.
Noakes added that a total of 300 scientists had written 150 research paper covering eight nations but still GcMAF hadn’t officially made its way off the medical drawing board.
Since 2015 he had been subjected to 14 raids involving more than 100 police officers with clinics being closed in three countries.
Noakes, who said his bank accounts had been closed down, added that it was fear over what GcMAF could achieve and its adverse effect on Big Pharma that was at the heart of the matter.
“The average cost of chemotherapy is £40,000 a round. GcMAF costs just one per cent of that,” he said.
“It is a human protein made in the blood. So you can’t patent it or make the kind of money they would like.”
Sentencing him, Judge Nicholas Lorraine-Smith said: "It is not GcMAF that is on trial."
He said Noakes "firmly" believed GcMAF had helped and would help people but had showed a "reckless disregard for the regulatory regime".
He had sold it to "extremely vulnerable people" and the fact it was freely available for sale on the internet was "horrifying", the judge added.
Judge Lorraine-Smith told Noakes the evidence pointed "very strongly to personal gain becoming a motive as your business developed" and he had "no doubt that almost from the beginning you knew that what you were doing was unlawful".
The product was sold through the company’s website to an estimated 10,000 people, Noakes told the court.
The supply was discovered when the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) raided a Cambridge laboratory in January 2015 and warned the public GcMAF might provide a significant risk to public health.
Cancer Research UK and the National Autistic Society were among those who have raised concerns about the product and Guernsey's government banned its importation in February 2015
Noakes was sentenced to 12-month terms for each of four offences relating to the unlicensed medicine to run concurrently, and to a further three months for money laundering.
