Counterfeit clothing and watches, made in Albania, were found in the port of Brindisi, Italy. According to local media , the Guardia di Finanza discovered a large load of work clothes landed on a truck, which was said to be goods from Albania, while carrying the label 'Made in Italy', despite the accompanying documentation saying that it was with Albanian origin.
In a heavy tonnage vehicle, departed from Albania, it was said that there were 1350 work sets. But from the control to the cargo were found hidden about 10 thousand swear words and 23 thousand forged 'Valentinp' gloves, as well as 10 thousand pairs of forged 'Converse' sneakers.
