: A video on fake Milo products in the market which has gone viral on social sites is an old case dating back to 2015, says the domestic trade, cooperatives and consumerism ministry.
In a statement today, it said the case took place on March 13, 2015 in Negeri Sembilan and action had been taken under the Trade Descriptions Act.
It said the case was prosecuted at the Intellectual Property Sessions Court in Seremban in which the court meted out a fine of RM60,000 or 12 months'' jail to the party involved, and all fake products in the case were disposed of, and were no longer in the market.
In this regard, the ministry advised consumers to be more alert when receiving such messages and not to believe unverified information. - BERNAMA
