Crackdown and police raids on fake sales

12th July 2011
Cllr John Salter reports
In a massive raid on 17 Wirral shops and off licences, conducted by the Police and the Council’s Trading Standards Officers, hundreds of thousands of pounds were seized as illegal material was found including fake products.  Money laundering was also reported in the press to have been investigated and as many as eight illegal immigrants are said to have been discovered.  John was present for much of the action as it happened.  He commented:
‘While this sort of thing is going on it becomes very difficult for decent, law abiding, traders to work on a level playing field.’
Shortly before the election in May some potentially misleading political propaganda was put about in Seacombe by another political party.  Given that this huge raid has now taken place, involving more than a hundred Police Officers, we draw attention to it here as we wish it to be made absolutely clear that Rana Newsagents is not in any way implicated in this recent activity and remains an excellent example of how proper trading should be done.
