According to Kuwait’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID), three Indian men have been arrested after successful raids in a residential area of Salmiya, where they had been operating a sophisticated illegal cable network.
The discovery of the illegal cable network in the country followed a six-month investigation by the police after OSN’s content protection team filed a complaint with the Kuwait Ministry of Interior, CID and Ministry of Communications.
OSN chief legal officer, Sophie Moloney, said: “I congratulate the Kuwaiti authorities for this successful operation against content piracy. We are very grateful they have put a stop to this huge illegal cable network, that was costing us millions of dollars in lost revenue.”
Kuwait CID estimate those operating the illegal network were earning approximately KD70,000 ($235,000) per month from their illegal services.
The arrested now face charges of money laundering and misuse of Kuwait’s telecommunications infrastructure.
