More DVDs seized
BY ADRIAN NEMES III

More pirated video discs valued at P1.6 million were confiscated by the members of the Optical Media Board and the Police Regional Intelligence Unit-6 from four business establishments in Cadiz City yesterday.

OMB Deputy on Enforcement Investigation Division Sergio Valdez told the DAILY STAR that they failed to arrest the vendors as they were no longer around when the raid was conducted.

Valdez said the confiscated video discs are now in a safe house in Bacolod City and will be destroyed.

Aside from the pirated video discs, they also recovered two DVD players, a speaker and two television sets, OMB records showed.

Meanwhile, Cyrus Paul Valenzuela, executive director of the Optical Media Board, said they already have the names of the occupants of the stalls where the pirated discs valued at P9 million that were confiscated on Tuesday from three shopping malls in Bacolod.

Valenzuela said they will file charges for violation of Republic Act 9239, or the Optical Media Board Act against the stall owners, but added that the management of the malls cannot be held liable for the sale of the pirated discs under the law.

He said OMB will intensify its the campaign against pirated video discs in the key cities in Visayas and Mindanao as ordered by OMB chairman Ronnie Rickets.*APN
