In yet another move to crackdown on pornographic material in the country, the Juvenile Court today ordered a ban on 107 porn websites and local movies with adult content, officials said.

The Police Women and Children’s Bureau submitted a report to the Juvenile Court in Battaramulla today seeking a ban on 107 porn websites and local movies which depict local actors and actresses involved in obscene scenes, sources at the Bureau told Daily Mirror online.

“These websites and movies needed to be banned  which is why we submitted a report to the Battaramulla Juvenile court today,” sources added.

The court ordered the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) to ban the websites immediately.

The government last year proposed a ban on all movies that are labeled as 'Adults only' and added that regulations on programmes and publications that include obscene scenes should be toughened.

The government also said that approval of the Public Performance Board for advertisements on TV, radio and newspapers would be made compulsory and such a decision was taken to stop advertisements created without any standards which were unhealthy for the society especially for small children.

Meanwhile the Police Women and Children’s Bureau last week also submitted a list of pornographic websites to the Juvenile Court in Battaramulla as part of the initial step to ban access to porn websites via mobile phones. (Daily Mirror online)

    Only the parents with kids will understand the value of this move.. I totally agreee with you.

    There are millions of porn web sites out there, Everyday new sites, old site with new names. Do not fight an unwinnable war.
    Keep an eye on what your kids do. give them standard mobile phone.

    Are you talking for yourself or using any statistics :>

    Miss. Malkanthi,

    Buddhist country only buddhists can live here?? Life without sex, alcohol is soooooooooooooooooo boring!! Don't the people need entertainment??

    Going by the emerging voting pattern in the country, the majority have behaved child-like retards: so this is a great move to keep them happy by watching cartoons which are aplenty when one switches to Rupavahini and ITN for their news casts.

    DHA Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:14 AM

    OK now.... no sex...no alcohol...then the best thing to do is import only religious movies...... !!!....very soon violent movies will be also banned.....!!

    Rajitha Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:14 AM

    better yet ban adulthood altogether, and treat all citizens as toddlers. what a joke.

    Gayan Samarasekara Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:20 AM

    Ok, promote only the cartoons.. :D

    legaltalk Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:23 AM

    Someone needs to file a fundamental rights application against this nonsense! For that matter - why won't we start banning everything which you have to be an adult to do - like voting, joining the military, getting married, having sex! I mean - those things are all obscene to a 5 year old!

    demon Wednesday, 25 August 2010 02:23 PM

    so stupid ! in order to build a healthy society they should block facebook and twitter as well...

    Rjay Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:29 AM

    I'm thinking if importing chastity belts would be a good business.

    LondonLankan_DT Wednesday, 25 August 2010 02:31 PM

    have you been to chicago?

    Herman Munster Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:37 AM

    Ok ,so called officials are having testosterone deficiency

    Mithraka Fernando Wednesday, 25 August 2010 09:37 AM

    WHY DONT THEY STOP SEX TOO LIKE THE CHINESE HAVE DONE FOR CHILD BIRTH...ONE CHILD PER FAMILY!! HEHEHE WHAT A JOKE!! ONLY IN SRI LANKA...

    The authorized officers should minimize the "Cause" then automatically "Effect" will be controlled. The value of the family and one's own freedom on sexual matters should be understood and taught.

    ND Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:08 AM

    I do agree that its better to educate parents and have software controlling use of porn sites by kids. It would be good to have similar controls in mobiles.
    Anyway, parents should know better than to give mobile phones to kids - especially those with internet access.
    They are trying to ban school kids using mobiles in New York coz its disturbing school work. But parents here are so proud to give their kids the best.
    If you dont give a sword or real gun to your kids, dont give them a cell phone either. And learn about software that control access to porn.

    Roshan Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:09 AM

    Porn movies always increase the sex between teens & adults (between unmarried) which cannot be appreciated.
    Therefore, the ban on Port is 100% correct to protect the citizens.

    Tm Abay Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:15 AM

    Wow! what a discovery?

    Adult Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:18 AM

    They also know that the quality of local porn movies and websites is so bad. That is why they are going to ban local movies.
    So, watch foreign porn. Do not worry.

    chutiya Wednesday, 25 August 2010 03:51 PM

    Dude... you are sexually frustrated! Who has defined good and bad when it comes to sex?

    chutiya Wednesday, 25 August 2010 03:52 PM

    TWO THUMBS UP!! (Y)(Y)

    Hiran Shanaka Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:27 AM

    To be precise, this deficiency is called Serotonin deficiency.

    suwimal Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:34 AM

    Decision of the court is just and reasonable because none of the voters had voted like adults in the last elections.

    anura Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:39 AM

    Wonder what the rape statistics are when made relative to banishment of porn?

    archis Wednesday, 25 August 2010 07:27 AM

    this is a good move.....

    malkanthi Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:43 AM

    Life is based on sex, alcohol and violent movies??? This is supposed to be a buddhist country not Chicago!!!!

    alipola Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:56 AM

    Local porn? Wow i have never seen them. where can i access?

    Practical Wednesday, 25 August 2010 10:56 AM

    Great idea and gift the first set to the guy who is behind this ban :)

    shehan35 Wednesday, 25 August 2010 11:11 AM

    To minimise the cause, you will have to castrate all males.
