The M&M rep in Brazil is called the Associacao Anti-Pirataria Cinema e Musica, APCM for short, and it was recently on the sharp end of a bust touted as being a Big Deal, and involving local police.
Now, however, two civil cops have been accused extorting money from CD and DVD street sellers.
The public prosecutor has charged inspector Joacuim Martins Madeira and officer Cacio Gomes Campos with, “running a protection racket”.
“This is case of police corruption reported in the APCM Newsletter in the last few days,” says the organisation, adding:
“On October 11, police officers in Londrina were arrested on similar charges.”
