Illegal vids on way out

All illegal laserdiscs and video films found in circulation in Jakarta will be destroyed as of next month, according to Semyon Sinulingga, head of the City Film Control Agency.

According to Semyon, recently quoted by a local news agency, any laserdisc or video which does not bear stickers from the Film Censorship Institute will be confiscated and later destroyed.

April is the deadline for the checking of laserdiscs and video films at the institute. Laser-discs were previously banned by the ministry of information, following reports of smuggling.
