Market watch seizes counterfeit vodka

DA NANG (VNS)— The central city's market watch discovered around 7,300 bottles of fake alcohol labelled as Men's Vodka at a downtown shop on Dien Bien Phu street during an inspection yesterday.

According to the city market watch, the manager of Tuan Binh Trading and Service Company could not provide documents or invoices verifying the vodka.

The 2,600 litres of vodka is estimated to be worth around VND365 million (US$17,000).

The case is still under investigation.

Last year, the city's market watch destroyed 3,000 bottles of fake brandy and 450 litres of unbottled alcohol. — VNS
