On Friday, the NUjij discussion platform received surprised reactions to the news that the Fiscal Intelligence and Investigation Service (FIOD) has destroyed more than ten thousand pairs of counterfeit Nike shoes. Why are these shoes not being given to poor families?

“It is prohibited in the Netherlands to copy and trade brands,” explains a FIOD spokesman. “If the FIOD gives the shoes away, we basically put them on the market and break the law.”

“Another important factor is safety,” the spokesperson added. “We cannot guarantee that the shoes are of sufficient quality.”

The more than twenty thousand sneakers were found on Thursday in hangars in Alphen aan den Rijn that were searched in connection with a criminal investigation into the trade in counterfeit designer clothes and shoes. The Nike shoes were destroyed the same day.

Not everything is destroyed

But will everything that is taken up by FIOD really be destroyed? “There are some examples of donations in collaboration with the Public Prosecution Service,” said the spokesperson. “At the end of last year, 16,000 kilos of confiscated washing powder were donated to the food bank. And a boat of drug smugglers was given to the Shipping College years ago.”

FIOD is part of the Tax Authorities and detects financial and tax fraud. The agency conducts investigations and gathers evidence to bring suspects to justice.
