Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and SODELPA MP Niko Nawaikula

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says there is a lot of difference between the role of the Film Censorship Board and SODELPA MP Niko Nawaikula’s suggestion that the board is not doing it’s job as more children are accessing pornography.

Nawaikula had said in parliament that the Film Censorship Board is completely useless and he also questioned the purpose of the board if children can easily access pornography on their mobile phones.

Nawaikula says this should have been changed now and it would have been useful if it was a Film and Internet Censorship Board instead.

While responding to Nawaikula, Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says the Film Censorship Board serves a different purpose.
