Über 100000 Paar Fake Nike und Adidas Schuhe zerstört (Video)

Fake Turnschuhe sind leider in der heutigen Zeit sehr verbreitet. Die Welle von Fälschungen schlägt über uns aus richtig Übersee hinweg. Kürzlich wurden in den Philippinen über 100.000 Paar gefälschter Nike, Adidas, Converse, Northface, Leaveland, Merelle, Lacoste, Vans, Havaianas und Ipanema Turnschuhe aus einem Lager beschlagnahmt. Die gefälschten Turnschuhe, die mehr als 1 Million Dollar wert waren, wurden zerstört. Schaut euch das Video unten.

MANILA, Philippines - Over 150,000 pairs of counterfeit Nike, Adidas and Converse shoes, as well as other popular footwear brands, were destroyed by the Bureau of Customs on Tuesday.

In a statement, the BOC said the thousands of China-made fake shoes, worth an estimated P50 million, were smuggled into the country last year.

The haul of fake Nike, Adidas, Converse, Sketchers, Northface, Leaveland, Merelle, Lacoste, Vans, Havaianas, and Ipanema products were seized from a warehouse in Olivares Compound in Parañaque City last February 2014.

"These counterfeit shoes and slippers were smuggled from China and were part of a big raid we had last year inside the Olivarez Compound in Parañaque City. We seized the warehouse to check the legality of the importation of goods but the owner failed to produce proof of payment of duties and taxes from Customs, consequently, the warehouse was padlocked and sealed for BOC custody," Customs Commissioner John P. Sevilla said.

The one-year gap between the seizure and the actual destruction of the smuggled products was attributed to the long process that included issuance of subpoenas to the concerned consignees and brokers, the need to secure the involvement of brand owners, and the conduct of hearings in accordance with existing regulations.

Sevilla said the shipments were subject to a series of hearings, but the claimant did not send any representative. This means the fake items have been forfeited and should be destroyed.

The BOC chief said the agency destroyed the fake products so it would not find its way in the market.

“We will not allow the Philippines to be a dumping ground of counterfeit goods. The BOC will ensure that manufacturers and distributors of genuine brands are protected. We are urging the public not to buy counterfeit products. Tigilan na po natin ito. Kapag wala pong tumatangkilik wala din pong bibili ng fake," Sevilla said.

Last April 2014, the BOC also destroyed more than 200 boxes of shoes imported from China after they were found to be fake at the Port of Davao.
