Madrid, June 5 (DPA) Spanish police have detained 32 Chinese in their biggest swoop against music and movie piracy so far, press reports said Thursday. Most of the detainees were undocumented immigrants working in slave-like conditions in four clandestine production centres in the Madrid region.

The factories, which ran day and night, were capable of copying 150,000 CDs or DVDs daily. That number of copies fetched 600,000 euros ($923,000) on the market.

Police seized 300,000 copies and half a million virgin discs.
