From September 2012 to October 2014, two Danish nationals engaged in an illicit operation involving the unauthorised manipulation of decoding devices and making television content available to others without permission from the rights holders. Defendant 1 JH provided the use of their internet connection and space for computer hardware whereas Defendant 2 MH — together with a third individual RH (case dealt with separately) — ran the operation and received the money from customers. The provided content included programmes from Viasat, YouSee and Canal Digital.

During the online seminar the following points will be covered:

  • technical/IT expertise and digital investigative techniques applied to support the investigation
  • the criminal modus operandi combining illegal card-sharing, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) and on-demand services
  • reliance upon two distinct approaches by the prosecution, corresponding to the specific nature of the respective legal violations associated with illegal card-sharing as distinguished from illegal IPTV and on-demand
  • application of criminal sanctions to Defendant 2 MH in light of the serious nature and particularly aggravating circumstances of the violations
  • avoidance by Defendant 1 JH of sanctions under the Criminal Code due to their lack of detailed knowledge about the illicit operation, not receiving any financial remuneration and the fact it could not be proved in court that Defendant 1 JH intended for the illicit service to have at least 100 subscribers

At an unspecified time in August-September 2012, two individuals — Defendant 1 RF and Defendant 2 TK (of Slovak and Czech nationality respectively) — made a poisonous mixture of methanol and ethanol and sold it to Defendant 3 JV, whom they knew to be a distributor of alcoholic beverages. Defendant 3 JV (a Czech national) then proceeded to distribute the harmful alcohol to others until it ultimately reached consumers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This case study examines a court case in the Czech Republic involving the unauthorised production and distribution of alcohol containing the toxic substance methanol between August and September 2012.The defendants’ illegal activities caused dozens of fatalities and numerous serious injuries, which caused significant public distress regarding the safety of alcoholic beverages in the country.

During the online seminar the following points will be covered:

  • interconnections between the trade in counterfeit consumer products (in this case, alcohol) and public health and safety
  • application of the public health and safety provisions of the Criminal Code in the Czech Republic to prosecute the offenders
  • large unregulated alcohol distribution network in the Czech Republic that overlapped to an extent with the legal supply chain
  • extensive response by Czech law enforcement, public health and other agencies
  • the criminals’ modus operandi
  • forensic science component of the investigation
