Prohibited Items Destroyed

By Patricia Keamo, EMTV Cadet Journalist – Port Moresby

Close to 300 prohibited items confiscated by enforcement officers from June last year were burnt today. These items included sex enhancement products, unclassified single DVD movies, soaps, multiple DVDs and gas lighters with indecent labels.

Assistant Senior Enforcement Officer, Gerea kappa, said most of these items are usually confiscated at the airport and during operations by enforcement officers.

Some items were confiscated by the customs officers at Airports and Post PNG.

For the case of the unclassified DVDs that were burnt today, they were confiscated by the customs officers and later referred to the Censorship office.

Meanwhile, enforcement officers would like to clarify to the public that the sex enhancement products confiscated recently will be destroyed after a thirty days grace period for the importer to appeal to the censorship board.

For the case of those who are using these enhancement products for medical reasons, they will have to prove by providing a medical certificate from three different doctors.

Otherwise, the items will be forfeited to the state for destruction.
