On September 23, the ECCK presented an appreciation plaque to Mr Gyung Don Yoon, the Chief of Busan Sasang Police in recognition of an exemplary achievement in combating counterfeits. In the course of their anti-counterfeiting activities, Mr Yoon and his colleagues have investigated for a particular case over a year. This resulted in the arrest of five individuals and the confiscation of approximately 2,500 counterfeit luxury goods, with a value of KRW 5.1 billion, in July 2016. Busan Sasang Police’s achievement highlights the importance of active enforcement by public officials and raises public awareness of counterfeit industry. Mr Yoon and Mr Sven-Erik Batenburg, the Head of Legal & International Affairs of ECCK, agreed on continuous cooperation in order to curb down illegal counterfeiting activities in the Busan and Gyeongnam Provinces.
