The Dubai Police has recently recorded 297 cases of counterfeiting and forgery, with a market value of approximately Dh2,570,253,778 during 2019, according to the Department of Combating Economic Crimes of the General Department of Criminal investigations.

Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jalaf, Director of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), emphasised that Dubai Police, in cooperation with its partners, spares no effort to combat economic crimes involving counterfeiting of all kinds of products and goods.

Through inspecting stores and capturing those who are involved in counterfeiting cases, Dubai Police managed to preserve the rights of trademarks' owners and their intellectual property.
