Five defendants were sentenced to jail time of between one and four years for making counterfeit cigarettes and selling them via the internet, according to a ruling made on Tuesday by a local court in Meishan. The local police and tobacco administration raided the group last May, seizing more than 4 million faked cigarette labels, along with cigarettes, packaging and equipment in six storehouses.
