SEREMBAN: A two-day blitz by the state Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs enforcement division hauled in pirated VCDs, DVDs and CDs worth over RM33,000. 

Division director Mohd Aris Ariffin said the operations, which concentrated on the town centre, were initiated after numerous complaints from the public that the sale of pirated discs was still rampant here. 

He said 2,600 pieces of pirated VCDs, DVDs and CDs were seized at the Terminal One shopping complex in the first operation on Tuesday while the second one was conducted along Jalan Rasah the next day, during which 3,000 VCDs were recovered. 

“We will continue to target other premises here, including several food courts and night markets, where unscrupulous traders have been seen soliciting for customers,” Mohd Aris said here yesterday. 

He said that during the operations, the division discovered the “mobile” peddlers were from out of state and had come here due to brisk sales.
