Fake designer bags worth RM1mil seized in Klang

SHAH ALAM: The Selangor Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry on Monday (April 10) seized about 10,000 fake branded handbags worth approximately RM1mil in a raid on two premises in a supermarket in Klang.

Selangor Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry director Mohd Zuhairi Mat Radey said three women and a man, aged between 18 and 38, were detained in connection with the 1pm seizures, the largest recorded this year.

He said the operation, which involved nine enforcement personnel, was conducted based on information and intelligence gathered over two weeks.

"The premises have been active for such illegal activity for the past three years. The case is being investigated under Section 102(1) of the Trademarks Act 2019 which involves goods to which a registered trademark is falsely applied under Section 100 of the Act," he said in a statement.

He said those involved could face a fine of up to RM10,000 for each of the goods or three years' imprisonment, or both, while companies could be fined RM15,000 for each of the goods. - Bernama
