A total of 252 boxes of HP ink cartridges have been confiscated as part of a police raid in Malaysia.
Speaking to Bernama.com, Bukit Aman commercial crime investigation department director Syed Ismail Azizan said 14 suspects were caught during a raid at a condominium in Brickfields, along with two factories in Ampang.
"The raid was carried out following information received from HP and led to the arrest of a Singaporean, 12 Myanmar men and a local woman", the news provider reported Mr Azizan as saying.
Police also found four laptop computers, packaging boxes with the HP name on them and multiple other electronic items, with the case being investigated under Section 41 (1) (d) of the Copyright Act 1987.
