Dubai Police has confiscated as many as 25,560 counterfeit fire prevention products, worth AED2.5 million.

The Department of Combating Economic Crimes of the General Department of Criminal investigations at Dubai Police has worked in partnership with UL Middle East, a technology security company, and Ten Intelligence, an anti-counterfeit operation to organise the campaign.

Brigadier Jamal Salem Al-Jallaf, director of the General Department of Criminal Investigations, said that the department raided two warehouses at Ras Al Khor Industrial Area in Dubai and seized the knock-off fire prevention products.

"The lack of quality in counterfeits is harmful to consumers threatening their safety since these fake products do not meet the standards of safety and security. It also causes damages to the country's economy and the original trademark owners," Al-Jallaf said.

Hamid Sayd, general manager of UL Middle East, warned against the "disastrous consequence" of counterfeiting safety maintaining products.
