Leroy appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday and he pleaded not guilty the charges.

"Leroy was further charged that with a view to gain for himself or another, or with intent to cause loss to another and without the consent of the registered owner of a trademark Puma, he exposed for sale goods which bear the sign Puma, and which were likely to be mistaken for the registered trademark Puma.
