Fake garments seized from mall

7th December, 2018

By JONATHAN NICHOLAS

KOTA KINABALU: The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs (KPDNHEP) seized counterfeit Polo Ralph Lauren garments worth RM196,400 from a shop located at a popular shopping mall here.

Its state director, Georgie Abas said the ministry received a complaint from the company’s regional representative on Wednesday and immediately launched a raid on the store at 11.25am on the same day.

The discovery was made when an appointed inventory auditor found that the clothes on sale did not match the order description placed to the company’s supplier.

“About 2,000 articles of men and women’s clothing comprised of casual dress shirts, pants, hats and neckties were seized in the raid.

“Also confiscated was a Polo Ralph Lauren brand ownership certificate under an Indonesian company and a copy of the 12-year-old store’s City Hall trading license,” he told a press conference at the KPDNHEP headquarters here at Mini Putrajaya yesterday.

In line with this, he added that the ministry has executed some 47,065 raids throughout the state this year totalling a number of 1081 cases with seizures amounting RM7 million.

From those number of cases Georgie said there are about 100 pending cases left which he added is fairly good statistics.

“So far 819 of the cases were compounded RM410,863 with fines amounting RM134,300 issued on various counts of violations.

“In terms of value, this Polo case is the biggest we have seen this year,” he said.
