A former drug company executive failed in his bid to have a conviction of scheming to manipulate his company’s stock price overturned during a court hearing in Brooklyn on Friday. Martin Shkreli, who is known as Pharma Bro, made his first public appearance since he was jailed in September for putting a $5,000 bounty on Hillary Clinton’s hair in a Facebook post.

Shkreli, 32, made global headlines in 2015 after the pharmaceutical company he founded, Turing Pharmaceuticals, secured the US rights to sell a reportedly life-saving medicine called Daraprim for $55 million (€49,5 million) and raised the price from $13.50 (€12.15) to $750 (€675) per pill shortly afterwards. But this criminal case is unconnected. He was convicted of trying to prop up the price of shares in Retrophin Inc.
