Cambodian busted for fake goods in Thailand

A Cambodian man who was arrested for allegedly transporting knock-off Adidas handbags and shoes across the border into Thailand faced court there yesterday.

Bun Tham, 43, was sent to Sa Kaeo Provincial Court in Thailand charged with illegally exporting goods into the country and violating intellectual property rights, according to Chhun Chhin, police chief at Malai district checkpoint in Banteay Meanchey province.

Tham was arrested when Thai authorities in Sa Kaeo’s Aranya Prathet district checked his car and discovered 20 handbags and 52 pairs of shoes – all Adidas fakes – which he allegedly planned to deliver to a customer in Bangkok.

Chhin said Tham was a resident of Phsar Kandal commune in Poipet district and was a driver who regularly transported goods to customers.

“He was arrested on Sunday and was sent to Sa Kaeo Provincial Court on Monday morning by Thai authorities accused of illegal export into Thailand and the violation of intellectual property rights,” Chhin said.
