Couple Selling Fake Helmets Caught

A couple who were actively selling fake helmets branded as Arai were caught by the authorities. They conducted their activities through the TikTok and Facebook applications.

The raid was carried out by the Kedah Ministry of Domestic Trade and Cost of Living (KPDN) with company representatives at a house in Alor Setar.

The director of Kedah KPDN, Muhammad Nizam Jamaludin said, the raid was after a complaint and the result of intelligence carried out since last February.

“Further inspection inside the premises found 95 helmets, 133 units of helmet bags and other items with branded labels which were confirmed to be counterfeit by the company representative.

“All items were confiscated with an estimated value of RM16,248 and the couple in their 30s were arrested. They were released after taking statements,” he said in a statement today.

He said the case was investigated in accordance with Section 102(1)(c) of the Trade Marks Act 2019 and the public was advised not to sell or offer any goods where a registered trade mark was used incorrectly.

The public who has information on any suspicious activity can channel it through all the official complaint channels of the KPDN or the Kedah KPDN office at 04-7001745,” he said.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
