Story :

ast week the South African Police Service (SAPS) arrested a suspect in Cape Town for illegally selling pirate Internet streaming devices and online content subscriptions.

The investigation followed information received by the Police's Provincial Commercial Detective Unit under the command of General Jeremy Veary regarding pirate activities that enable people to view MultiChoice SA content as well as that of other international TV providers illegally.

Irdeto, a subsidiary of the MultiChoice Group (MCG) that deals in cyber security, worked closely with SAPS in the investigation, which led to the arrest and confiscation of a number of pirate Internet streaming devices and server equipment.

The accused appeared in court on 5 December and the case was postponed to February 2020. He was released on R2 000 bail.
