The Democratic Alliance says that compliance officers of the Film and Publications Board are removing materials from shelves of DVD stores in absence of any evidence.

DA spokesperson Sandy Kalyan says that Compliance officers in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal should stick to their core mandate and not become police officers.

She said that compliance officer’s modus operandi should be checked, because some DVD outlets may have to shut down and many people will loose their jobs.

The FPB’s mandate is to classify material for the protection of children from potentially disturbing and harmful materials within films, videos, games and publications.
