100 people arrested on charges of smuggling and distributing satellite equipment

Friday, 16 August 2013

Head of the police’s morality unit Brigadier Mohammad Mas’ud Zahedian said that the arrested individuals smuggled huge amounts of satellite equipment through Iran’s western border, exploiting the lack of (sufficient) surveillance in these regions. Zahedian said that “the smugglers stored the equipment (satellite receivers, dishes, and low-noise block down converters, LNB) in Tehran and then distributed them in central, northern and western cities.” He maintained that in addition to cultural problems, such actions also cause economic problems.
