Over 100 thousand masks with fake Ce brand, for a total commercial value of over 80 thousand euros, they were seized by the soldiers of the Guardia di Finanza of Milan who also denounced two subjects of Chinese nationality. During the economic control services of the territory, also aimed at combating the illicit trafficking of products connected to the ongoing health emergency as well as to protect consumers, the financiers of the Pronto Employment group of Milan identified in the city, in the area adjacent to via Paolo Sarpi, a commercial activity managed by two Chinese subjects, which clandestinely stocked medical and personal protection devices of different categories, bearing counterfeit CE marks and without mandatory certification.
The methods of counterfeiting, capable of generating in the consumer the deceptive conviction of using adequate protective measures, required the financiers to carry out an in-depth examination of the products, following which the undue “Ce” marking of the same was detected. In consideration of this, the entire stock of masks was seized and the importer was reported to the local Public Prosecutor’s Office for the crimes of counterfeiting and sale of industrial products with misleading signs.
