Govt involved in local porn production: AG – PNG/Sex Trade

Elizabeth Vuvu; 17/1/08

Justice and Attorney-General Minister Dr Allan Marat is concerned that East New Britain authorities appeared to be turning a blind eye to the production of pornography in the province. He said the authorities would have heard of the racket and he could not understand why they had not done anything to curb it. “(Instead) why are they putting a lid on the issue?” he asked yesterday in response to a front-page report in The National. “I have not seen copies of those locally-made pornographic materials yet, but I have been briefed by my aide, Bernie Benson, and others in ENB. “To think that some who are involved in this activity but are still being retained by Government shows that the Government is involved.”

Pornography and the people
Editorial; 17/1/08
Pronography is making another appearance on centre stage in Papua New Guinea. The issue goes back to a time well before independence, but public awareness of the subject became widespread when claims of locally generated pornography became common in the last quarter of the past century. At one point, prominent figures were named as alleged participants in obscene movies, charges that they vehemently rejected. No firm evidence was produced to underpin those accusations. But times have changed, not only in our country but around the globe. Pornography is today readily accessible.
