105,000 pirated DVDs seized in Kuwait
September 2, 2013, 12:34 pm

Police in Kuwait have detained four men and seized 105,000 pirated digital video discs (DVDs) of mainly pornographic movies. The raid was carried out following tips about the illegal activities of the Asian gang copying and selling the movies, local Arabic daily Al Watan reported on Sunday.

Computers used to copy the movies were also confiscated in the raid, sources told the daily.

“The authorities have expressed concern about the sale of pornographic material to young people in a blatant attack on the values and principles of our society,” the sources said.

Pornography, in all its forms, is banned in Kuwait and in the other Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) member countries. Raids on shops selling pirated DVDs are regularly conducted to ensure compliance with copyright laws. The seized DVDs are invariably destroyed.
