Drakopoulos Works With Greek Police on Seizure of Fake Goods


Drakopoulos, working in cooperation with React — its client — and the Greek police, has played an unspecified role in the police's "huge seizure of  54.420 fake watches,” on June 18th, 2015, in a warehouse located nearby the city center.

The firm reports that the fake watches infringed 6 different brands of the Swiss Watches Federation. In addition, 4.530 items of luxury fashion brands such as wallets, scarves and sunglasses as well as 3.840 audio items were also found and seized. 

The police arrested 3 Greek nationals who were taken in for questioning and will be charged by the criminal court, and is continuing to search for an additional suspect — a Chinese national — who the firm reports "probably escaped to China."

All of the seized goods were determined to be counterfeit and have been already destroyed.
