Kandal Provincial Court yesterday sentenced a Chinese national to one year imprisonment for distributing tonnes of fake cosmetics in Takhmao city.
Mao Li Jun was arrested in Kandal province’s Takhmao city on March 31. Officers confiscated 30 tonnes of fake cosmetics and charged him with selling fake goods.
“The counterfeiters were claiming their products were made in Japan, but they were actually made in Kandal province,” Meach Sophanna, undersecretary of state and chairman of the Counter Counterfeit Committee, said after the arrest.
So Sarin, spokesman for the provincial court, yesterday said the suspect, who has been jailed since his arrest, will continue to serve his jail term at the provincial prison.
“He was already in detention after not getting bail and will continue to serve his one-year sentence,” he said.
