The Ministry of Custom and Labour seized a container packed with school books at the Queen Salote Wharf.
Speaking to Radio Tonga News, the CEO of Labour – Edgar Cocker said, they have seized the container after they have confirmed that the books inside are fake and not original.
The container belongs to an Asian man and it was shipped to Tonga from China.
He said, the books look exactly like the original ones but it clearly stated that it was Made in China.
However Cocker said, this has breached the Consumer Act and he had to cancel the company’s license.
He said this is not the first time they have witnessed this problem but in the past, they have discovered fake copies of P.K.
Cocker also calls on the public to be more cautious with the goods that they purchase from the shops.
