Counterfeit ticket seller given 3-year sentence

A MAN who sold fake tickets for a top music event has been jailed for three years and fined 2.58 million yuan (US$407,640), the Pudong New Area People's Court said yesterday.

The seller, surnamed Li, aged 45, bought thousands of fake tickets from vendors on October 5 last year, the day the three-day Rock Records 30th Anniversary Shanghai Concert kicked off at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Pudong, prosecutors said.

Li was apprehended by police that evening in a hotel on Huaihai Road. Officers seized 1,673 fake tickets with a face value of more than 2.57 million yuan, the court heard.

Li, from Anhui Province, had earlier been jailed for two years and three months and fined 840,000 yuan for selling fake tickets in Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province.

The court did not reveal how many fake tickets were sold but the concert organizer said fake tickets posed a great threat to performances.
