    CARTRIDGES & PACKAGING SEIZED

    U.A.E.
    NOV  2009 — (uae)The Sharjah Economic Development Department (SEDD)
    monitoring team, in cooperation with the Sharjah Police Department, has
    seized a large number of counterfeit products labeled with the HP
    trademark at a villa located in the Al Jazat area in the emirate of
    Sharjah.”Commercial counterfeiting damages the public welfare as
    well as the national economy,” said H.E. Ali Salim Al Mahmoud, SEDD
    General Manager, after the raid. “As such, we have increased the number
    of monitoring campaigns and have instructed the monitoring teams to take
    full action against counterfeiters to stop this kind of activity.”All
    praise goes to our monitoring teams who are taking steps to put an end
    to counterfeiting in the market, to the Sharjah police for their full
    cooperation and support, and to the public for their help in detecting
    counterfeit products. This not only proves great awareness among the
    public, but also that clients have every confidence in the department.”
    Commenting on the raid, Ali Fadhil of the Dispute Resolution Division
    said: “The counterfeiters were thoroughly questioned to establish the
    sources of the counterfeit products and to complete case proceedings so
    that specialized authorities can take full action to further restrict
    counterfeit activities, as these actions greatly harm the welfare of the
    public, as well as the national economy.” The counterfeit products
    seized by the SEDD’s Legal Affairs Section included 1,939 HP stickers,
    821,252 empty HP boxes and associated packaging, and 14,668 empty
    printer ink cartridges that would have been filled and sold to the
    consumer as original HP cartridges, as well as numerous other products
    essential to printing, such as printer symbol sets.

    Said Hamad Al
    Madfa’, Legal Affairs Deputy Manager: “Counterfeit products are kept at
    the department’s warehouse until a decision is made by the committee
    concerning these products. However, we always make sure to destroy any
    counterfeit products seized through monitoring campaigns or searches
    based on consumer complaints or sudden raids. So far, the department has
    confiscated a large number of products carrying the HP and Forward
    brands.
