A Prominent Retailer found guilty of selling Illegal Bollywood DVDs

25 April 2007

Mira Uk Ltd, based in Brick Lane, London E1 was found guilty on Friday 20th April in Thames Magistrates' court of possession for supply of unclassified Bollywood and Bengali DVD’s.

On 28th February 2006 officers from trading standards swooped on the premises after complaints from customers and seized 105 DVDS and 319 VHS films for infringing the video recordings act 1984.

The Company is well-established in the community but failed to act on previous advice and warnings from trading standards of its malpractices and was prosecuted.

At Thames Magistrates’ Court, the company was fined £3000.00 and also ordered to pay prosecution costs in the sum of £1,342.00 and the court further ordered the forfeiture of all the DVD’s and videos that were seized.

Nazir Ali, trading standards lead officer for the case said - "It sends out a clear signal to other traders in the borough that we would actively pursue illicit traders and ensure they are prosecuted". ... e3f9409f83
