State security forces have spent years creating specialized units to fight sale of counterfeit goods. Mossos d’Esquadra (the police force of Catalonia), Local Police, Civil Guard, National Police and Customs Police in particular staffed and provided resources to genuine research units that are effective in suppressing such crime.
Thanks to their work, today we know that behind counterfeit goods, there are large mafia groups. They use illegal immigrants for the sale of this type of goods, obtaining huge economic benefits at the expense of private companies, creators and authors. The fraud involving the sale of these counterfeit goods causes serious damage to national economy and public finances.
SUGRAÑES recently participated in several operations against counterfeiting. A large number of counterfeit goods were seized with the essential collaboration of State security forces. We thank them for their work and professionalism.
