About 3,000 counterfeit items, valued at more than Bt1 million, including prohibited imported goods, have been torched at the incinerator in Phuket Town on Thursday, led by Phuket Customs Office chief Kanjana Suwachino.

Kanjana said: “This is the final step in cases involving counterfeit and imported prohibited products that have been seized in Phuket in recent months. After the cases are closed and sentences are handed down, items have to be publicly destroyed.

“Most items are counterfeit watches, glasses, shoes, bags, clothing, wallets and prohibited imported goods, such as cigarettes, tobacco and vapes.”

The goods seized were from 45 cases, with 2,669 items valued at around Bt1,260,000.
