A PEDDLER who sold hooky DVDs and porn films in London’s East End has been slapped with a suspended jail sentence and banned for 10 years from carrying CDs, DVDs or videos in public.

His copying equipment has also been ordered by a district judge at Thames Magistrates’ court to be destroyed.

Juiang Wu was caught selling unclassified and fake DVDs along Bethnal Green on May 19 and again on November 20.

Police searching his home at Upper Clapton Road in Clapton, after his arrest, found 800 dodgy DVDs, including fake feature films such as Rambo and pornographic titles. They also found 400 inlay covers and printers for making the covers.

Wu received a six-month sentence suspended for two years after admitting two offences of selling fake DVDs.

The seized fakes and his copying and printing equipment were forfeited and ordered to be destroyed.
