  • 2000-07-27
TALLINN (BNS) - Economic police in Estonia's west-Viru County have discovered a secret shampoo bottling factory in Kadrina and seized more than 60,000 flasks of fake shampoo, estimated to have about 1.8 million kroons ($106,000) market value.

According to the police, about 10 people be employed in the underground shampoo factory.

Because of lack of evidence, the police were unable to say whether more shampoo than the quantity acutally seized had been bottled at the factory, although the factory left the impression it had been made for repeated use.

According to the police, the plastic flasks found in the Kadrina factory were made in Estonia but the origin of the raw material and the labels was unclear.

Fred Nahkur, public relations director of the Procter & Gamble group in Estonia, absolutely ruled out the possibility the shampoo ingredients could have been legally obtained from some of their factories.
