Anti-piracy outfits claim the be on the side of the law, but as it turns out, their representatives are not always so. The president of Lithuania’s anti-piracy organization LANVA is against piracy, but according to the police, he condones other crimes.
Vytas Simanavicius is accused by the Organized Crime Investigation Board of trading drugs and possession of illegal narcotics, TorrentFreak reports
LANVA has been very efficient in combating piracy and the organization even teamed up with Microsoft a couple of years ago against the site of a BitTorrent tracker.
However, the outfit’s president seems to have been busy with other things as well, authorities naming him as the lead suspect in an investigation that targets the trading of illegal drugs.
If he is found guilty, he could be sentenced to as many as 8 years in prison.
