The Ministry of Trade and Industry, Government of Ghana, has suspended the operations of the Anti-Piracy Task Force constituted to seize and destroy pirated textiles.
 
The Task Force has been suspended for the time being to streamline its operation at a meeting of all stakeholders, Edwin Nii Lantey Vanderpuye, Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry told the Ghana News Agency.
 
After a meeting of all the stakeholders, the Task Force would be reviewed and evaluated so that the local industries are protected.
 
The Minister’s statement came a day after the Task Force confiscated 1,035 pieces of pirated textiles at the 31st December market in Accra.
 
The confiscated textiles included both fancy and wax prints of pirated logos of Ghanaian textile printing companies
