Federal Revenue seizes more than 100 thousand TV box sets in Itaguaí, Rio de Janeiro.
The devices, imported irregularly, are the new “gato-net”.
The Division of Vigilance and Suppression of Smuggling and Misappropriation of the Regional Superintendence of the Federal Revenue in the 7th Fiscal Region (ES / RJ) seized, this Wednesday (10/21), more than 100 thousand TV box sets during a major operation, still in progress, in Itaguaí / RJ.
The devices, imported irregularly, are considered the new “gato-net”. This is already the biggest TV box seizure in the country. The work is a continuation of joint operations carried out since September, with an intense exchange of intelligence information between the Federal Revenue Service, the Federal Police and the Civil Police Special Resources Coordination.
TV box sets are used to access television channels by circumventing the official services of producers, in violation of copyrights, crimes against immaterial property and smuggling.
