We have received complaints about the improper use of public space and today’s operation relied on the intelligence sector, which identified and mapped this clandestine warehouse with various counterfeit items. It is very important, inclusive, the support of the Civil Police in this type of operation, so there were large seizures of counterfeit materials, pirated, which end up cluttering the city. We will continue to act intelligently and rigorously to restore public order in Madureira,” emphasizes the Secretary of Public Order, Brenno Carnevale.
