Polish Customs Seize Counterfeit Euro 2012 Medals

Jan 27 2012 - 11:20

Last month the Polish customs officials in Mazovia, Poland’s east-central region, seized 1,000 counterfeit commemorative medals bearing the 2012 European Football Championship (Euro 2012) marks.

A Polish company ordered the medals to be made in China without authorization and planned to distribute them in Poland. The Polish customs will destroy the fake medals at the company’s expense.

Earlier in 2011 about 41,000 pairs of sneakers bearing the Euro 2012 marks were seized by the Polish customs.

Euro 2012, the 14th European soccer championship for national teams, will take place in Poland and Ukraine in June and July 2012.
