Quezon City Mayor Josefina “Joy” Belmonte has warned suppliers and distributors of goods to stop their practice of delivering counterfeit products.

Belmonte issued the stern warning following reports that fake commodities were delivered by the city government’s suppliers and distributors of goods.

Recently, it was brought to her attention that 1,100 pairs of counterfeit branded rubber shoes were distributed to the local athletes who will represent the city in various national sporting events.

Belmonte has ordered the City Legal Office to initiate legal action against those who were involved and conspired to commit the offenses.

She also instructed the Procurement Department to conduct necessary due diligence in their evaluation and selection of winning bidders to avoid the award of contracts unscrupulous suppliers/distributors.

“We are very thankful to Mayor Belmonte for acting swiftly on t he matter. Now, we can focus on preparing for upcoming events and to bring honor to our beloved city,” said volunteer sports consultant Jordan Tolentino.
