On September 19, 2008, members of SD PETOSEVIC office in Belgrade along with Petar Tadic, the Chief of Serbia’s Intellectual Property Protection Customs department, and members of the media, witnessed the destruction of 15,000 pairs of counterfeit sport shoes at a city waste yard. The shoes, packed in cardboard cartons that took up an entire truck semi-trailer, were fed through a shredder which reduced the shoes to scraps no larger than 10x10 centimeters (around 4x4 inches).
The smuggled shoes came from China and entered the region via a common smuggling route. The Serbian Commercial Court ordered that the shoes be confiscated and destroyed.

23 representatives from our offices across the Balkans, as well as from Luxembourg, Brussels and New York gathered at the Hotel Splendido in Boka Kotorska from June 19-21 to share accomplishments for the first 6 months of the year, as well as to present the structure and working regulations of each respective office. We highlighted our priorities for the second half of the year and managed to take the time to enjoy the natural beauty of Boka Kotorska too.
From Wikipedia: The old Mediterranean port of Kotor, surrounded by an impressive city wall, built by Serbian House of Nemanjic, is very well preserved and protected by UNESCO. Between 1420 and 1797, Kotor and its surroundings were under the rule of the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. The Gulf of Kotor (Boka Kotorska), one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea, is sometimes called the southern-most fjord in Europe. With the nearly overhanging limestone cliffs of Orjen and Lovcen one of the great Mediterranean landscapes is created.
