Policeman and customs officers allegedly involved in import of counterfeit goods from Turkey

Two criminal organisations that imported counterfeit brand-name consumer goods to Greece from Turkey were dismantled by Financial Police, authorities announced on Monday.

Twenty individuals have been arrested so far, among them three customs officers and a policeman charged with criminal counts of forgery and money laundering.

The organisations owned warehouses in several parts of Greece and supplied stores with the counterfeit goods.
