Two arrested over sale of counterfeit shampoo

Two women were arrested in Siem Reap on Saturday for selling counterfeit shampoo and will be sent to the Siem Reap Provincial Court today, police said yesterday.

Soeun Sen, from Siem Reap anti-economic crime police, said officers had questioned the two women, who face prison time after allegedly being caught in the possession of more than 500 bottles of bootlegged shampoo.

“By law, trade names and dishonest competition can land a [seller] in jail for at least one year, and [makers of the fake product], for three to five years,” he said.

Sen identified the suspects as Seng Pov, 24 and Kim Thyda, 28, both from the capital’s Meanchey district.

The pair were investigated after two of their buyers filed lawsuits against them and they evaded police for two weeks.

They were arrested while distributing their products, Sen added.
