4 million baht of ‘Fakes’ seized at the Thep Prasit Night Market in Pattaya

The deputy Tourist Police Bureau chief, Pol Maj Gen Surachate Hakpan, has led a raid with the Technology Crime Suppression Division and seized over 10,000 items of pirated merchandise at Pattaya’s Thep Prasit Pattaya Market – a popular tourist magnet for fake goods. The raids started around 11pm last night (Saturday).

Goods confiscated included fakes of various ‘name’ brands – clothes, electrical appliances, footwear, watches, perfume and handbags. The street value of the fake goods was estimated to be around 4 million baht.

Maj Gen Surachate says the ongoing crackdown on fake merchandise in street markets was a joint co-operation between the US and Thailand to suppress sources and outlets for pirated products, including violations of intellectual property.
