Spain - Court donates fakes to an NGO.
According to the newspaper La Vanguardia, the Local Police of Cambrils has succeeded in convincing the Reus Criminal Court to donate 200 fake garments to the NGO Càritas. The donated goods were previously declared counterfeits by a final judgment. No surprise that, given the large number of counterfeited goods yearly seized in the tourist area known as the Costa Daurada (where Cambrils is located), the storage of these materials once the Court cases are concluded has become a nuisance for the Cambrils Municipality, the Court and the local Police.
According to the press article, the aggrieved trademark owners acquiesced in the humanitarian destiny of these Dolce Gabbana, Lacoste and Burberry fakes. It is also stated that the Local Police of Cambrils aims to make of the donation the usual destination of Court-declared faked goods. Up to date, fakes are normally destroyed (or simply thrown in the dump).
