Sri Lanka to arrest local porn stars: police
07 Oct, 2010 06:14:43
October 6, 2010 (AFP) - Sri Lankan police said Wednesday they were seeking the arrest of men and women who had starred in locally-made pornographic movies and would soon publish headshots in the newspapers.
The Children’s and Women’s Bureau of the police said it planned to send photographs of the local porn stars to the mainstream press and would ask for public cooperation to identify them, a police official said.

"We are moving slowly to arrest the suspects involved in acting as well as producing pornographic movies," the official said, without saying how many people were wanted.

A list of people will be filed in court on Thursday, he said, adding that the bureau had already moved court to ban 180 Sri Lankan porn sites showing locally-made videos.

The Sri Lankan Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has been asked to prevent users in the country accessing the websites.

The move followed complaints heard at Colombo's Juvenile Court that children had free access to the websites featuring Sri Lankans.

Other adult sites featuring non-Sri Lankans will remain available, however.

Sri Lanka already maintains an unofficial ban on websites of dissidents by getting local Internet service providers to block access.

This should be done VERY VERY carefully and responsibly. There are lost of Porn circulating on the net that they say are Sri Lankan, but really they are not, most of them are look-a-likes most likely Indian and some even from Caribbean countries.

When it comes to the subject of "Sex", Sri Lankans seems to jump into conclusions with out thoroughly investigating. i.e. the incident where that school girl committed suicide, that. She was NOT in the alleged video, it was video commonly circulating the net.

Simply put, when a matter involving sexual content arise, authorities just want to get the things quickly over with, without unbiased analysis.

Can't the authorities find some more productive activity than this?

It's a good thing that other websites that show gruesome killings, murders and accidents remain accessible so that our kids can browse them without a problem. Also the authorities should permit animal sacrifice, because it is not a bad thing like porn.

Can we have the names of these website? So that we can access through proxy servers...... Govt is giving a good mileage for these so called local porn sites.
