Counterfeit products worth 10 million Kuwaiti dinars seized

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI), in a major crackdown, seized counterfeit luxury products worth over 10 million Kuwaiti dinars (approximately 33 million US dollars).

About 623,762 items, includes accessories, bags, women’s clothing, shoes, and other items from renowned international brands were seized in a warehouse located in Farwaniya Governorate.

This is one of the largest seizures of counterfeit products by the ministry in Kuwait.

The ministry disclosed that the counterfeit goods were traced following suspicions raised about their sale through social media accounts, which organized auctions or offered these products at discounted prices compared to their retail prices at official stores of these international brands in Kuwait.

The source responsible for distributing these counterfeit products in large quantities was identified during surveillance operations. is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel
