64 illegal radio stations seized and equipment seized

Intervienen 64 estaciones de radio ilegales e incautan equipos

Peru. The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) reported on the efforts made at the national level to combat illegal broadcasting stations, also known as "pirate radios".

So far this year, 64 illegal stations operating without the corresponding permits have been seized, reaffirming the MTC's commitment to protect the proper use of the radio spectrum and promote a fair and equitable telecommunications market.

These operations, carried out in various regions of the country, have been possible thanks to the joint work of the MTC, the Peruvian National Police and the Public Prosecutor's Office. As a result, more than 169 pieces of equipment used for the illegal provision of telecommunications services, including audio and video modulators, decoders, transmitters and antennas, have been seized.

It should be noted that, during the month of May, nine illegal radio stations were seized in the city of Lima, which were operating without the corresponding permits or authorizations.

The Deputy Minister of Communications, Carla Sosa Vela, underlined the relevance of these actions: "These operations demonstrate our commitment to safeguarding the correct use of the radio spectrum and ensuring that broadcasting is carried out in a legal and authorized manner. The MTC is committed to combating the clandestine operation of telecommunications services to promote an environment of fair and equitable competition in the market," he said.

The MTC reminds citizens that operating an illegal radio station constitutes the crime of aggravated theft of the radio spectrum, provided for in the Penal Code and punishable by imprisonment of up to 6 years. Likewise, the provision of the broadcasting service without authorization from the MTC is an administrative offence classified as Very Serious and is punishable by a fine.
