NBI seized fake Timberland bags in Binondo mall.
THE National Bureau Of Investigation (NBI) yesterday reported the seizure of thousands of pesos seized worth of counterfeit Timberland Bags at a raid in popular mall in Binondo.

Lawyer Jose Justo Yap of the Intellectual Property Rights Division (IPRD) said agents raided the sales outlet and stockroom of Jambalaya General Merchandise owned by Susan Go Janeth M. Abra on the ground floor at the 168 shopping mall on Soler Street and at Fortune Palace on Juan Luna Street, both in Binondo.

They face charges of trade infringement under the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines (Republic Act 8293)

Yap said the agents seized hundreds of counterfeit Timberland bags based on warrants obtained from Judge Reynaldo G. Ros of the Manila Regional Trial Court. No amount for the seized bags was disclosed.

Yap, in a report, said the NBI had placed the establishments under months of surveillance and conducted several test buys to confirm the evidence gathered through Orion Support Incorporated (OSI), a market research firm representing Timberland.

Intellectual Property Rights

OSI has investigated several thousand IPR infringers and successfully raided over 2,500 illicit manufacturers and major importer/distributors, Philippine-wide, since 1992. And their success rate hovers at just under 98% over the last 22 years, a significant accomplishment in an industry known for significant corruption.


Commercial Investigations

While OSI's three senior managers have many years of investigative experience throughout Europe, the Americas and other areas within S.E. Asia, they have over 70+ years of such experience and investigative contacts throughout the Philippines. And, they have established a proven and successful track record as reflected by their client list outlined on the client page of this website.

OSI's Security Risk Management division supports the protection initiatives of major international and local corporations doing business throughout the Philippines.
