Police seize around 6,000 counterfeit products in Athens raids


Police in Athens on Saturday detained seven men – aged between 34 and 44 – on charges of illegally trading in contraband goods.

The suspects, all Senegalese nationals, were arrested in a crackdown by members of the Financial Police in central Athens.

A search on their homes turned up around 6,000 contraband items – chiefly fake designer clothes, shoes and accessories – as well as documents indicating that large quantities of counterfeit goods had been mailed to other countries from Greece.
