 A Filipina saleslady and her Pakistani employer were charged today, May 13, in Eastern Court with selling and possessing pirated electronic goods in a shop in World-Wide House last year.

No plea was taken from Zolaida Gogo, 34, and Muhammad Shuaib, 46, saleslady and owner, respectively, of the electronics shop located on the third floor of the building’s shopping arcade.

The defendants were charged by the Customs and Excise Department of one count each “selling goods to which a forged trademark was applied” and “possession for sale or for any purpose of trade or manufacture goods to which a false trademark was applied.”
Magistrate Bina Chainrai adjourned the hearing until Jun 24 and extended the bail of the two defendants.

The first charge said Customs said Gogo and Muhammad sold one piece of a 32 gigabyte micro SD card bearing a forged “Sandisk” trademark on Jun 6 last year.

The prosecution said the buyer turned out to be a Customs undercover officer.
