Ghanaian textile traders resent Taskforce

The modus operandi of the Taskforce set up to curb the import of pirated fabrics in Ghana is being resented by traders who import and distribute textiles.

Traders allege that the Taskforce is acting in an arbitrary manner while doing its task of seizing pirated textile prints. The Task force had seized 206 pieces of pirated textiles in Accra and had burnt about 700 pieces of pirated wax prints in Kpone this month.

Traders say that the Taskforce should inform the traders whose goods they confiscate. The traders should then be given a chance to defend themselves. Evergreen designs are supposed to be given back to the traders, as per the rules laid down for the Taskforce operations by the Minister for Trade.

Designs that are more than 15 years in existence are termed as evergreen and these are not to be burnt, according to the directives.

Traders, now say that the Taskforce should come with a valid search warrant, and its members should disclose their identity when they come for seizing the pirated fabrics.

Traders, also say that the Taskforce people should issue receipt of the seized goods, mentioning the place where they are being taken. Finally, the traders should have a right to defend whatever has been seized.

They say, in the absence of such a procedure, the Taskforce will fail the purpose for which it has been set up, and instead end up as a fear and panic causing force among the traders.
