Illegal cafes busted

OPERATORS of unlicensed cyber cafes were punished for the first time in Shanghai for ignoring the orders of the city's industrial and commercial regulators. Two offenders who reopened their banned Internet cafes repeatedly were sentenced to six months yesterday for operating an illegal business. The Fengxian District People's Court said one convict, surnamed Lu, began to run an unlicensed Internet cafe in an apartment in 2009. Prosecutors say Lu was fined several times after the district commercial watchdog received complaints from his neighbors, but Lu turned a deaf ear to official warnings and continued to run his business.
