SOME P31.5 million worth of counterfeit Nike products were seized by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation-Rizal District Office in an operation in Cabanatuan City. 

NBI Officer-In-Charge Eric Distor said 20,914 pairs of fake Nike slides/slippers and 42 pairs of Nike shoes were confiscated during the raid conducted by his men on March 10.

Raided was the establishment in General Trias Extension H. Concepcion in Cabanatuan City.

Distor said the confiscation of the counterfeit Nike products stemmed from search warrants issued by the Manila Regional Trial Court for violation of Republic Act 8293 (Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines.)

Charges for violation of Section 155 (Trademark Infringement) in relation to Section 170 of Republic Act 8293 are now being readied for filing in court against  Martin Sy, proprietors, officers, and employees of the raided building in Cabanatuan City.
