Piracy: 28,000 Sound And Videocarriers Seized In Rome, 7.500 In Naples
The Municipal Police of Rome, during a recent raid, seized 28,000 counterfeited sound and videocarriers and arrested 11 Senegalese. The operation, named “Airone” from the Roman street where the investigations began two years ago, was ordered by Public Prosecutor Pietro Saviotti. Six houses in various towns of the Roman province were searched and 28,000 illicit carriers – audio and videocarriers and videogames – were seized. The whole trade value is more than 200,000 euros. As a result of this operation, carried out in cooperation with FAPAV (Audio and Videographic Anti-Piracy Federation) and with SIAE’s Antipiracy Division, 24 extra-Europeans were charged; 11 of them, of Senegalese nationality, were arrested. Moreover, the Italian police have acquired further important data to carry on the investigation, also in other Italian cities.
At the same time, the Custom Service of Afragola, a town near Naples, in cooperation with SIAE and FAPAV, seized an illegal store of illicit carriers in Naples. About 7,500 carriers – CDs, DVDs and CD Play Stations – were seized. An Italian was arrested.
