Compensation for phony vodka: $2.7 million USD

Three Croatian companies, ‘Straža’, ‘Jedinstvo’ and ‘Kočiš Commerce’, have to pay $2.7 million USD compensation to Swedish vodka producer Absolut, as ruled by the High Commercial Court, because they were involved in the counterfeit activities

The High Commercial Courts ruled against three Croatian companies – “Straža” glass factory from Hum on the Sutla River, “Jedinstvo” packaging from Ivanac and “Kočiš Commerce” from Osijek – for a total of $2,691,027.01 USD which will need to be paid to the Swedish alcoholic beverage producer “V&S Group” due to counterfeit and illegal sale of their most recognized brand, Absolut vodka. The decision in the case, which one of the largest alcoholic beverage producers in the world filed against these companies ten years ago, proves that Croatia was a trafficking center in the mid-90 of over 2.8 million bottles of the third strongest alcohol brand in the world.

  2. U utorak trebam biti u Starogradskoj vječnici na dodjeli jubilarnih nagrada, u subotu u Samoboru na domjenku DDK-a,onda su Sisvete, a od 03 dani Sesveta….kako da se uskladim sa svim događajima, a da se i nađem sa vama svima? Iako nisu dani za velika slavlja, mislim na Sisvete, postoji mogučnost da ćemo ja i Šnajderica doći na groblja u Slavoniju. Tada bi bila jedina prilika da se vidimo i ti, i ja i BaćaIva i Paor…pa eto ako bi to nekako se moglo uskladiti tada bih volio da se vidimo, a to mi možeš javiti na e-mail…pozdrav prijatelju…
