SINGAPORE : Two men have been arrested for their involvement in a syndicate that imports and distributes counterfeit accessories for electronic goods.

Police raided a wholesale shop located at Geylang on Tuesday and seized more than 5,500 counterfeit items.

They were mainly accessories for mobile phones and tablet PCs such as protective covers, power chargers, batteries and earphones which bore falsely—applied trademarks of well—known brands.

The counterfeit goods had been imported into Singapore and then distributed to local retailers in Singapore.

Investigations against both men are ongoing.

If found guilty of selling or distributing counterfeit goods, the men can be fined up to S$100,000, or jailed up to five years, or both.
