Thousands of fake tekkies confiscated at OR Tambo

Counterfeit tekkies worth about R2.8 million were seized at OR Tambo International Airport over the Easter weekend.

Customs officials found 2 380 pairs of sports shoes, weighing 956kg, during a routine inspection of a cargo shed, SARS spokesperson Sandile Memela said in a statement.

The consignment came from Hong Kong.

They were handed over to the brand holders’ intellectual property lawyers to explore possible criminal prosecution.
