    [02] Warehouse raids in Athens

    (ANA-MPA) -- Police on Monday reported the discovery of two warehouses filled with counterfeit brand-name clothes and watches in the downtown Athens district of Kerameikos. Both warehouses were underground basements on Akadimou Street, measuring 100 square metres and 250 square metres, respectively.

    The two warehouses were discovered during an operation begun by police and the Athens municipality on Monday morning to combat the illicit trade in pirated goods in the city's commercial centre.

    A police announcement noted that nine warehouses and one multi-storey building on Pireos Street -- now home to dozens of "ethnic" wholesale and retail outlets -- filled with fake goods have so far been discovered. The estimated value of the goods they contained exceeded 30 million euros.
