The goods were seized during the inspection of two garment manufacturing workhops in the town of Raška in southern Serbia.

On a separate occasion, while inspecting a bus travelling from Turkey to Serbia, at the Gradina border crossing point with Bulgaria, the customs officials seized 18 counterfeit authenticity certificates infringing the Gucci® and Emporio Armani® trademarks. The certificates were carried by one of the passengers with the intention of using them to sell counterfeit accessories.
