Macedonian Customs Seize Counterfeit Converse and Reebok
The Macedonian Customs seized 1,360 pairs of counterfeit Converse and Reebok sports footwear on September 4, 2009. The customs officers found the goods while searching a truck with Turkish license plates on the Deve Bair border, in northeastern Macedonia. The seized goods originated from Dubai and were intended for the Kosovo market.
Earlier, in August, 756 pairs of Converse, Adidas and Puma sports footwear were seized at the same border. The truck, loaded with various goods from the United Arab Emirates, also had Turkish license plates and was headed to Kosovo.
In addition, also in August, customs officers of Struga border, in southwestern Macedonia, prevented a Macedonian truck from importing 250 Dolce & Gabbana children’s leggings. In this case, the goods originated from Turkey and were declared at customs as a consignment for a Macedonian importer.
