Commenting article: Bulgarian Anti-Mafia Unit Bust Large-Scale Contraband

Bulgaria's Unit for Combating Organized Crime (GDBOP) busted a virtual shopping mall selling fake contraband brand name label goods, the Interior Ministry reports Saturday.

The confiscated goods are valued at over BGN 1.4 M. The storage facilities have been located in the very heart of downtown Sofia. The site – www.mallvm.con – sold luxury accessories, fake brand name perfumes, fashion, jewelry, and handbags, among others.

On Friday, the authorities have been able to seize several shipments sent to different parts of the country. They have started legal proceedings in the case.

I used to like JOY, but now I like Armani Code. I still like my vintage Burberry bag from a long time ago. The new models are not as nice.

Nellie,

"I still like my vintage Burberry bag"

Tampons, pads, or too old?

ROFLMAO

Well, check the website !
The company is selling "fake look a like" brands, but does not claim to sell genuine items !
8 out of 10 fashion shops in Sofia are doing the same and who can blame the customers?
Fakes sell quite well, and they are not illegal "contra- band".
But let the Interior Minister go ahead with another episode in his Theater of the Absurd- a useless police action that will only end up with no one convicted and the contraband hopefully returned the owners.
It is better that the "police" focuses on hundreds of kilo of gold, several stolen/confiscated luxury cars, unknown quantity drugs/heroin that have "disappeared from police/customs custody while alarm and surveillance cameras have been conveniently switched off .

Well, I guess I have to be careful as Mr. Tsvetanov now has announced himself the divine ruler of Bulgaria. Any critical comments are now threats to Bulgaria's Security and we have become enemies of the state. His left-hand supporter and fan, the ex. fireman, mayor and dictator bodyguard Mr. Borisov has publicly declared he will rule Bulgaria without law and order and respect for civil/human rights - because that is what
the Bulgarian people wants.

And we say: Welcome back to the New Stone Age !
