Nevrie Hasan of Whittlesea Road, Harrow, Middlesex, HA36LR appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court on the 2nd April 2019 for sentence having previously pleaded guilty to four offences of selling counterfeit goods contrary to Section 92 of The Trademarks Act 1994 at the same court on 28th March 2019.
She was sentenced to a 12 Month Community Order (concurrent on each Count) to include 80 hours’ unpaid work. She was also ordered to pay an investigation costs contribution of £500, to be paid at £75 per month and an £85 statutory victim surcharge. The court made a Forfeiture and destruction order for all goods seized by TM Eye.
The case was brought by TM Eye as a private criminal prosecution on behalf of one of its luxury goods clients.
Hasan operated an online FACEBOOK selling page advertising and selling large numbers of fake goods from a wide variety of luxury goods brands. She operated from her home address. TM Eye’s Online Investigations Team carried out a series of recorded test purchases on the 12th and 22nd of January 2019 and 4th February 2019. Detectives from the Dedicated Undercover Unit supported by TM Eye’s Surveillance then met with Hasan and purchased the goods in person. All meetings were covertly filmed and formed the evidence leading to the prosecution and conviction.
