A large amount of Chinese motor spare parts which were marked as made in Germany and Japan were seized from Panchikawatta in Maradana, yesterday. They were taken into custody during a raid conducted by Consumer Affairs Authority. The Authority has sealed the arrested items. In facing legal action for alleged violation are thirty motor vehicle spare part outlets, CAA sources said. Steps are being taken to produce them before the Maligawatta Magistrate once the value of seized items had been determined, they said. CAA inspectors said they also took into custody a considerable haul of motor spare parts which were on sale without price tags. Industry and Commerce Minister Rishard Badiudeen said the CAA has been mobilized to conduct vigorous raids on motor vehicle spare parts and the ministry expects to ensure that legitimate and quality products reach consumers.
