Hungarian border officials seized 3,900 counterfeit inkjet cartridges close to the Hungary-Austria-Slovakia border tripoint.
Biztonsagpiac (Hungarian) reported on the seizure of the inkjet cartridges, which were said by the National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV) to be worth around HUF 80 million ($294,708/€253,835). The authorities stated that they “inspected a truck with [a] Hungarian numberplate” close to the village of Rajka near the Hungary-Austria-Slovakia border tripoint, finding the cartridges inside.
The seizure took place yesterday, and the authorities added that the 3,900 cartridges “have been proven to be counterfeits on the basis of the preliminary expert opinion”, with each cartridge featuring a logo that has “been produced without the proprietor’s consent”, and a criminal complaint has been made for “infringement of industrial property rights” which “has been lodged with financial investigators”.
