Counterfeited seals of renowned international gold and jewellery brands have been seized by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) from a workshop in Doha.
According to a release issued by the Ministry of Interior (MoI), the seizure was made in a raid conducted in coordination with the Licensing Department at the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC).
The CID also arrested 9 Asian men from the workshop where the seizure of the fake seals were made. The CID raided the workshop on a tip-off and found it was operating without a license.
A number of jewellery items marked with the fake seal were also seized from the shop.
The arrested men have been referred to the investigative entities to take the necessary legal procedures against them, the MoI said.
The CID has urged the public to deal with licensed shops only while buying and selling gold and jewellery and to report any suspicious practices by calling 999.
