P5-M fake jeans seized

The National Bureau of Investigation confiscated counterfeit designer jeans worth P5.1 million in a raid in Pasay City.

The NBI-Intellectual Property Rights Division raided the Yuan Guin warehouse at 620 Apello Cruz St., Malibay and seized 2,837 pairs of fake Lee jeans.

The NBI placed the establishment under surveillance and conducted test-buys to confirm the illicit sale which was relayed to the bureau by complainant Orion Support Incorporated, which is representing the Intellectual Property Rights of HD Lee Company.

Charges of trademark infringement under the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines or Republic Act 8293 are being prepared against the owner of the establishment.

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.


Security Risk Management

OSI's Security Risk Management division supports the protection initiatives of major international and local corporations doing business throughout the Philippines. In-country operational regions include the major high risk areas in Mindanao, where current activities include performing in-depth security and political risk assessments, security program audits, VIP protection operations, and counter insurgency collections.
