The factory was found putting labels of a big international brand on the products.

Counterfeit hand sanitisers bearing the trademark of a global brand have been seized from a factory in Abu Dhabi.

The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED) said it raided the facility during a filed inspection carried out in coordination with the Abu Dhabi Police.

The raid, which was intended to fight off commercial counterfeit, happened after the authorities received information about the duplicate products being produced there.

The factory was found putting labels of a big international brand on the products.

All the fake items at the facility were seized and the owners have been referred to the public prosecution for legal action.
