KUALA LUMPUR: A movie distributor in a joint operation with the city police seized pirated Hindi and Tamil movie VCDs worth more than RM900,000 here yesterday.
Dragon Movies Sdn Bhd enforcement manager Mohd Amir Hamzah said acting on a tip-off, staff from the company and the city commercial crime division raided a double-storey house at Taman Desa in Old Klang Road.
They found 187,000 VCDs in a room rented by a 25-year-old man who was later arrested.
Each copy was sold for at least RM5.
The VCDs, distributed by Dragon Movies Sdn Bhd, did not possess the “B” certificate from the Film Censorship Board, he told reporters at the city police contingent headquarters in Jalan Hang Tuah here.
Last Saturday, a similar raid was conducted by the company at an apartment in Jalan Masjid India where 300 pirated VCDs and a master copy were found.
The apartment was said to belong to the same syndicate and was used as a studio to re-record and package the pirated VCDs.
