UAE: Nearly 1.8 million fake products worth Dh105,000 seized in 2020
The products were confiscated during 37,726 inspection raids.
As many as 1,780,228 fake products, worth Dh105,000, were seized last year by the department of economic development in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.
The counterfeits, including household items, detergents, sanitisers, handbags, watches, glasses, pens and wallets, had fake trademarks of internationally famous brands.
The products were confiscated during 37,726 inspection raids launched in 2020 across the emirate to ensure that entities comply with anti-Covid-19 measures, according to a senior official.
Faisal Alyoon, manager, control and commercial protection department, said his teams were at the forefront of the crackdown.
“Inspection and awareness campaigns were organised round the clock across Ras Al Khaimah.” Figures showed that up to 1,780,228 duplicate products were detected and seized last year, he revealed, adding they were valued around Dh105,000.
“The successful seizures would not have been possible without the cooperation of the RAK community police,” Alyoon underlined.
