Zilina, February 24 (TASR) – Zilina customs officers found 1,026 fake condoms set to be delivered to a recipient in Cadca (Zilina region) from China, TASR learnt from Zilina Customs Office spokesperson Bozena Chribikova on Wednesday.
Following a close inspection of the goods, the customs officers ascertained that the condoms were a brand replica. “The owner of the trademark unequivocally confirmed that the products are fakes and represent a violation of intellectual property rights. The customs officials also informed the recipient about the delivery’s status and he consented to having the condoms liquidated,” said Chribikova.
“Because the goods cannot be used even for humanitarian purposes, they will be physically liquidated. The adoption of this approach also prevents any unwanted potential consequences that could arise by the use of the product,” added Chribikova.
