P5-M Fake jeans seized in Pasay.
SOME P5 MILLION WORTH OF FAKE Lee jeans were seized by agents of national Bureau of Investigation (NBI) during a series of raids in Pasay City recently.

Raided were the retail outlets and stockroom of Jessica C. Mamangon RTW Shop at Sunnyline Shopping Shopping Center and Galleria Baclaran Shopping Mall on Taft Avenue, Pasay City.

Agents of the NBI Intellectual Property Rights Division (IPRD) also swooped down on C.M. Lacang General Merchandise’s stalls and stockrooms-all located at Galleria Baclaran Shopping Mall. Seized from the establishments were 3,232 pieces of counterfeit Lee jeans.

IPRD chief Jose Justo Yap said they had received information that the owners of the establishments were selling fake Lee pants.

NBI agents monitored the operations of the establishments and later confirmed that the information was correct. Yap said owners of the erring firms will be charged with violating Section 155 (trademark infringement) in relation to Section 170 of Republic Act8293.
