Fake NIKE destroyed in Serbia
The first ever destruction of counterfeit goods in Serbia by the Customs Authorities took place on December 29, 2006.
13,000 pairs of counterfeit running shoes, bearing the trademarks of NIKE and DEISEL, were destroyed in one day at the State waste facilities. Instead of burning the running shoes, as was done in other countries, the shoes were cut into small pieces by a large machine used for destroying tires. The method had the approval of the Serbian Ministry of Environment, as is required under the law.
