Fake cosmetics worth $100m seized in crackdown.
Almost 70 tonnes of fake cosmetics have been seized and three business owners detained in an ongoing crackdown by the Interior Ministry’s Counter Counterfeit Committee.
Meach Sophanna, undersecretary of state and chairman of the committee, said the crackdown was intended to protect the public from harmful products that risked their health.
“This has been an historical operation that has uncovered a huge number of fake products in our country,” Mr Sophanna said.
There have been several big arrests since the crackdown begun.
Chinese national Mao Li Jun was apprehended in Kandal province’s Takhmao city on March 31.
Officers confiscated 30 tonnes of fake Shiseido cosmetics and charged him with selling fake goods.
