 An Azerbaijani citizen was detained at Sochi international airport for attempting to smuggle illegal goods from Turkey, according to vesti-sochi.tv.

During the inspection, 954 fabric samples with GARDEN trademark that are included in the list of intellectual property among the goods were found. Then the passenger claimed that he is a manager and is taking curtain samples to the textile exhibition in Krasnodar.

 

According to the Russian legislation, officially registered trademark can be only used with the consent of the proprietor. The Azerbaijani citizen said that he didn’t sign any agreement with the proprietor and didn’t summit the license. The fabric samples were confiscated on suspicion of illegal use without permission of the proprietor and were sent to customs examination.

 

The goods were proved to be smuggling goods and seized.

 

A criminal case was launched under three articles and sent to the court.
