More young people selling fake goods online
(05-07 16:43)

The Customs and Excise Department on Wednesday expressed concern over a surge in the number of young people selling counterfeit goods on the Internet.
This came after its latest figures showed more than 30 percent of the people arrested in the first four months of this year were under 23, compared with 19 percent for the whole of 2013, RTHK reports.
The Divisional Commander of the Intellectual Property Technology Crime Investigation Division, Guy Fong, said that during the past three months, officers have stepped up enforcement action against the sale of fake goods online.
He said 45 people were arrested and more than 11,000 fake goods, worth about HK$1.12 million, were seized.
Fong said the youngest offender was only 14-year-old.
