Office of the Censorship removes illegal items from Rapid Phones

The Enforcement Division from the Office of Censorship removed 81 Digital Video Discs (DVDs) from a Rapid Phone outlet located within the Food World shopping centre on Tuesday 3rd May, 2016.
Acting Senior Enforcement Officer Mr Gerea Kapa confirmed that 81 DVDs were taken from Rapid Phone who was reselling theDVDs without proper classification labels from the Office of Censorship.
Mr Kapa stated that Rapid Phone operates under a Publication Premises company called Pro Scan Limited and although they are registered to sell DVDs to the public, the DVDs that were on display did not have any classification label from the Office of Censorship.
Acting Manager Compliance & Operations Division Mr Bais Buchanan stated that due to financial constraints, the Office was not able to carry out proper inspections on the respective publication premises.
However, he stated that publication premises have the responsibility of complying with regulations by registering and obtaining proper classification labels from the Office of Censorship.
Mr Buchanan also stated that a combined operation is planned to take place in the Mid-Year with assistance from the Royal PNG Constabulary and the PNG Customs office.
In a similar operation last week, Mr Buchanan confirmed that over 30 illegal Sex Enhancement Products were confiscated from the Water Front Pharmacy and awaits destruction.
