The seized goods include 5,445 dresses, 409 skirts, 1,902 coats, 838 shirts, 279 pants, 124 suits, 24 bags and 14 wallets.

The department said that after checking five stores in the capital, a market management team confiscated the brand’s products for failure to present sufficient invoices proving the lawful origin of the goods.

The seized goods include 5,445 dresses, 409 skirts, 1,902 coats, 838 shirts, 279 pants, 124 suits, 24 bags and 14 wallets.

The market management team has taken three samples for quality inspection.

Previously, another market management team conducted a garment inspection and discovered that workers at 503 Bát Khối, Thạch Bàn Ward, Long Biên District were cutting original labels in foreign languages ​​and replacing them with IFU and some NEM labels on clothing products on November 4.

At the time of inspection, authorities seized a total volume of goods of about four tonnes, estimated to be worth VNĐ2 billion (US$86,000).

According to a representative of NEM fashion, the firm was completely unaware the facility in Long Biên District had counterfeited Vietnamese brands including a small number labelled NEM.

NEM said it would work closely with the Hà Nội Market Management Department to protect its brand.

Director of the Hà Nội Market Management Department Chu Xuân Kiên said  the case was still in the process of verification. To avoid harming the reputation of brands, the functional force was handling the issue very carefully. — VNS
