A trader at Barking Market has been fined and given a community order after he was caught selling fake Ralph Lauren children’s t-shirts.
Khalid Jawed, 34, of Sheringham Drive, Barking, was caught with more than 400 counterfeit items during a routine market inspection by Trading Standards.
Last week at Snaresbrook Crown Court he was ordered to pay £4,000, to be shared by the government and the council to fund crime prevention efforts, and more than £1,000 in court costs.
He was also given a 40 hour community order.
Cllr Laila Butt, cabinet member for enforcement and community safety, said: “It’s unfair on consumers and it’s unfair on other shops and stalls who are selling legitimate goods.
