Customs officers arrested six mainlanders and seized HK$12.7 million worth of smuggled VCDs after intercepting a mainland-bound fishing boat near the sea boundary off Magazine Island late on Wednesday night. The 529 cartons of video compact discs, including music videos and television dramas, were hidden in secret compartments, customs spokesman Carl Lam Chi-keung said. Investigation showed the discs were genuine products and destined for Shanwei, Guangdong province. The six men, aged between 31 and 47, were being held for questioning last night.
