Jail for East End clothes faker
A COUNTERFEITER behind a scam involving bogus brand name clothes worth millions of pounds has been jailed for two years.
Kanran Ghori, 34, traded the fakes on eBay, an urban clothes website and a shop in Assam Street, Whitechapel.
Gary Pons, prosecuting, yesterday told Snarebrook Crown Court trading standards officers made test purchases after seeing the clothes for sale on the internet auction site at low prices.
The judge, Mr Recorder James Dawson, sentenced Ghori to a two-year prison sentences for the 14 charges of unauthorised use of a trademark, and two three-month sentences for charges of trademark forgery.
All the sentences will run concurrently, meaning he will serve two years.
