Just like to share a quite interesting news I picked up from Malaysian Mirror website. (http://www.malaysianmirror.com/nationaldetail/6-national/43569-policewoman-caught-with-2000-fake-watches-)
Policewoman looking at doing time
Monday, 21 June 2010
RANTAU PANJANG – A tip-off led to the arrest of a senior policewoman who was caught with eight bags of fake watches worth over RM100,000.
A man in his 60s who was with her was also detained in the raid here yesterday.
The police officer in her 30s was picked up while parking her car in the street at 2.45 pm, said General Operations Force (GOC) 9 assistant commanding officer DSP Mohamad Latiff.
"Acting on a tip-off, we kept the car driven by the police officer under surveillance before we moved in.
Made in China
"We arrested the police officer and her male passenger in his 60s," Mohamad told reporters here yesterday.
Upon inspection, the GOC found the bags of fake watches, with each valued at between RM 15 and RM 150.
He said the watches, which were believed to be smuggled from China through Thailand, would be handed over to enforcement division of the Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism Ministry.
If this case is proven in the Malaysian court of law, it would tarnish our beloved country's image...imagine government officers smuggling imitation items.
I sincerely hope no government officers are involved in peddling imitation items online or otherwise.
