Government is looking at enacting new legislations to prevent exploitation of children in obscene publications and to safeguard the children from exposure to ill effects of pornographic materials, government media reports.

Minister of Justice, Dr. Wijayadasa Rajapaksha has proposed drafting a new Obscene Publications Bill as the government believes that the provisions stipulated in the archaic Penal Code and Obscene Publications Ordinance of 1927, are inadequate to deal with current social context.

Government sources further claim that minister’s proposal to draft a new obscene publication bill has been approved by the Cabinet.
