On July 31, 2017, Serbian customs officials at the Nikola Tesla airport in the capital of Belgrade seized 32,250 rubber and textile sneaker labels bearing fake Converse All Star® and Reebok® trademarks.

The labels, which were discovered in the luggage of a man arriving from Shanghai, China, are estimated to be worth approximately EUR 3,400 (USD 4,000).

On August 4, 2017, while inspecting a courier service vehicle on the E-761 highway in south-central Serbia, customs officials seized a significant amount of apparel, including sweatpants, leggings, jeans and T-shirts, believed to infringe the Nike®, Adidas®, Diesel® and Levi’s® trademarks. The vehicle was transporting parcels from Novi Pazar in southern Serbia to Šabac in western Serbia.
