Police Raid Action Targeting Counterfeit Engine Oils

A Thai factory located in Lam Luk Ka district, Pathum Thani province, was raided by the police, leading to the seizure of thousands of automotive-related products, including counterfeit engine oils, plastic engine oil containers, cardboard boxes, labels, and even foil seals that cover the tops of engine oil containers. All of the seized items bore trademarks belonging to Honda Motor (Japan) and other leading companies.

As a result of this raid, the police seized 17,863 counterfeit items bearing the HONDA trademark, and more than 50,000 items of counterfeit items bearing other well-known brands. The raid led to the arrest of three employees and sparked a further investigation into the factory owners and company directors.
