World Anti Counterfeiting Day – June 5th 2014
UNODC launches consumer awareness brochure on counterfeiting and organized crime on World Anti Counterfeiting Day 2014
To coincide with World Anti Counterfeiting Day, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has launched a new consumer awareness brochure on the links between counterfeiting and organized crime.
“Counterfeiting fuels other crimes such as corruption and money laundering, and often overlaps with trafficking of drugs, guns and human beings,” said UNODC Executive Director Yury Fedotov. “For this reason, there is a pressing need to tackle counterfeiting, particularly by convincing consumers to reduce the demand for these illicit goods.”
