Seven Johannesburg police officers have been arrested in South Africa following a raid on illegal traders in central Johannesburg.
Five of the arrested officers are to be prosecuted for trying to sell some of the confiscated counterfeit goods back to the shop owners. Two others are accused of tipping them off about the planned raid.
Several buildings and roads were shut down in the Johannesburg city centre as various police units moved into the area to look for counterfeit goods and illegal items
The news has prompted South Africans to speak out about corruption, with some on social media suggesting that before the fake designer clothes had reached the shops in downtown Johannesburg, plenty of bribes must have been paid.
