The police “Lahav” unit on Monday raided a factory for the illegal reproduction of CDs and DVDs, located in the northern city of Tzefat. Several detainees were taken into custody and made a court appearance Monday afternoon, when an indictment was handed down against one of the heads of the operation for current and previous offenses. The court extended the individual's remand for an unlimited period, police said.
Thousands of copies of CDs and DVDs were discovered in the lab, along with thousands of blank media to be used in the operation. Police are now investigating who the purchasers of the phony movies and music discs were.
