The 5,696 items were destroyed at an event led by Phuket Customs official Suthatsanee Suphaphan at the Saphan Hin incinerator.

The items were either seized in raids carried out by Customs officials as well as police and relevant agencies, or seized as forbidden imports.

Among the contraband were clothes, watches, sunglasses, shoes, bags as well as cigarettes and tobacco and other products to be ingested by use of Baraku pipes.

All the copyright items seized were identified as fake by representatives of the genuine copyright owner, Customs officials explained.

Also, all the persons who had items seized from them had 30 days to file their claim against the seizure, but failed to do so, the officials added.

Just a thought.
Would it be better if these goods be visibly and permanently marked and then given to the many poor citizens of Phuket?
It would benefit them, not pollute the air, and make for a much better photo.

Huh, B1.9mn only?  LOL.  Just a little show. And for how much were the sellers fined for all their illegal actions  ( buying/selling) ? It is a crime, is it not?
