Completion of expert evidence for prosecutions by lawenforcement agencies
Reactive cases involve the receipt of samples of suspected fake goods and requests from Trading Standards, Police, UKBA or other law enforcement agencies for evidence packages supporting criminal prosecutions.
In such cases TM EYE compile expert witness statements, digital photos of the examination, continuity of evidence, and disclosure for court. This will include attendance at court to give evidence, avoiding a company’s ability to trade when vital members of staff may be caught up in proceedings.
We also complete National Customs Applications to prevent the import of counterfeit goods and again support UK Border Agency officers in any detentions of goods with seizure notices and statements.
TM EYE undertakes both proactive and reactive investigations of those importing counterfeit goods into the UK to then identify suspects for Trading Standards and Police enforcement action or alternatively, to initiate private criminal prosecutions on behalf of the victim.
