Tehran, Iran, Feb. 18 – Iranian police confiscated 28,000 bottles of liqueur, large quantities of banned CDs, and several thousand satellite dishes at a facility in Tehran as part of a crackdown on “social vice” in the Iranian capital.

Brigadier General Mohammad-Reza Alipour, head of police intelligence in Tehran, announced on Sunday that the items had been confiscated during the second phase of Operation Enhanced Security in Society.

Alipour said that under phase one of the operation 1,414 “trouble-makers” had been sent behind bars.

He said that during the second phase 28,000 bottles of alcoholic drinks were discovered and confiscated in four warehouses and six people who had been distributing them were arrested.

Alcohol is banned in Iran. Anyone caught drinking liqueur receives a fine or is sentenced to flogging in public and imprisonment.

Some 3,250 satellite dishes were also confiscated during a raid on a site in which they were being manufactured.

Some 130,000 “illegal” CDs whose content ranged from Western pop music to movies to pornographic material were all confiscated during the operation.

The Islamic Republic banned satellite dishes in 1995. The crackdown on satellite dishes was prompted by broadcasts from Iranian opposition groups whose television programs reportedly have a large audience in Iran.
