Jamaica police have detained two Chinese nationals after seizing counterfeit goods estimated at more than J$100 million at a business establishment in the capital on Monday.

The seizure is the second within a two week period involving Chinese nationals. On April 3, law enforcement officials seized J$500 million worth of counterfeit clothing and shoes at two establishments in the capital.

Six Chinese nationals were arrested and two have since been charged with breaches of the Trademark Act.

Assistant Superintendent at the Counter-Terrorism and Organized Crime Investigation Branch (C-TOC), Victor Barrett, said in the latest incident, the police raided two establishments after getting intelligence that counterfeit goods were at these locations.

He said a wide assortment of brands, such as Nike, Puma, Converse and Gucci, were seized during the raid.

He said two Chinese nationals were assiting the police in their investigations.
