Wholesalers arrested for selling fake fashion goods

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Three wholesalers in the southern port city of Kaohsiung have been arrested on suspicion of distributing counterfeit fashion goods to local retailers, police sources said yesterday.

Members of a police squad formed to protect intellectual property rights and crack down on commercial piracy found more than 4,000 fake brand-name fashion items during a raid Monday on storehouses owned by the wholesalers in the city's Yencheng district and Sanmin district, the sources said.

A large number of boutique handbags and personal adornments carrying various fake brand-name labels, including Hello Kitty, Meloday and Innamoroll, were seized in the raid, according to the sources.

The wholesalers claimed that all those items were imported from China and South Korea, the sources said.
