KUCHING, March 27: The Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living (KPDN) Sarawak seized 902 units of fake Android car players, dashcams and speakers valued at RM442,977 from a warehouse at Demak Laut Industrial Park yesterday (March 26).

KPDN Sarawak director Matthew Dominic Barin said that this seizure represented the highest value of confiscated items this year under the Trademarks Act 2019.


“Our enforcement officers along with representatives of the trademark owner raided the warehouse suspected of selling fake products following a complaint received.

“The raid conducted successfully uncovered a significant quantity of suspected fake products, comprising electronic vehicle goods. Additionally, a female supervisor of the warehouse has been detained,” he said in a statement today.

KPDN Sarawak enforcement detained a female worker of a warehouse suspected of selling fake products during a raid on March 26, 2024.

The case will be investigated under Section 102(1) of the Act, which deals with the import, sale, offering for sale, or possession for trade or manufacturing purposes of goods bearing falsely applied registered trademarks.

In a stern warning to traders to adhere to legislation, Matthew said violators could face imprisonment for up to three years, a maximum fine of RM10,000 per infringed item, or both.

Subsequent offenses may result in fines not exceeding RM20,000 per improperly registered trademark item or imprisonment for up to five years, or both.
