Customs condemns false accusation

Customs today seized a batch of suspected law-breaking products from a chain retailing group and condemned any false accusation maliciously alleging that its action against the trader is repression.   It seized a batch of 14 models of suspected law-breaking shower gels, household cleaning detergents and clothing bleaches from various premises of the chain retailing group.   The product information marked on the packages of the products involved failed to bear bilingual warnings or cautions for their safekeeping, use, consumption or disposal, suspected to be in contravention of the Consumer Goods Safety Regulation, a subsidiary legislation of the Consumer Goods Safety Ordinance.   Customs said an investigation is ongoing and did not exclude the likelihood of more arrests.   For the sake of public interest, the department will make a public announcement on details of the case on April 9 and alert the public on the suspected law-breaking products.   Customs added it will take all necessary actions, under which decisive law enforcement action will be taken if any suspected violation is found.
