Counterfeit clothing seized by Dubai Customs.


Dh3.2 million fake products recycled in Dubai


DUBAI – Confiscated fake products worth Dh3.2 million have been recycled as part of Dubai’s eco-friendly approach in disposing seized goods, according to Dubai Customs.

The Dubai Customs said it recycled 149,000 counterfeit goods that were seized since the start of the year.

Yousef Ozair Mubarak, director of Dubai Customs’ Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) department, said international brands were given the option to recycle the seized products.

“Instead of destroying counterfeit goods, we offer them the option of recycling them as this is more environmentally friendly,” Mubarak said without giving further details about the recycling process.

“The damage caused by counterfeit goods to the economy, environment and even perhaps our overall quality of life should be something of a given to most people,” he added. ICA/Expat Media
