Police Seize 2,000 Bottles Of Fake Liquor... Guess Where?
Somehow, everyone likes to attribute fake and substandard products to China but over the years the world has almost become non-existent without their products.
This is because some kind of trust has developed in those years, but let no one assume that the days of fake products are totally gone.
Police in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region and Sichuan Province have seized 2,000 bottles of fake liquor in a joint raid, local authorities said on Monday.
Urumqi police were informed in January by police in Luzhou City, Sichuan that a person in Urumqi had been buying packages of brand liquor from a fake liquor plant in Luzhou.
Five suspects were caught and two factories were closed along with five selling sites and a storage location in January.
More than 2,000 bottles of fake liquor were seized, including “brands” such as Moutai and Wuliangye. The amount of money involved was over 7 million Yuan (1.1 million dollars).
The suspects confessed to buying bottles of famous liquor brands and filling them with low quality liquor.
Report says as the Chinese New Year draws near, the demand for liquor is on the rise.
It is unknown if any of these products have found their way into the export channels but then, it's better to shine your eyes when buying shayo.
