THE Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood (ADPL) has suggested that all film posters for Category III films be submitted for classification before they are allowed to be displayed. The call was made following recent complaints about film posters considered obscene. A survey by the ADPL showed increased concern in the community about their influence on youngsters. The ADPL believed the problem arose mainly from enforcement, which could be made easier if posters were submitted for classification before going on display. It said heavier penalties could also be imposed if its recommendation were adopted. Under existing legislation, printed matter designated as Category I can be widely circulated while material classified as Category II is required to have a wrapper to prevent easy access by youngsters. As obscene posters would already fall under Category II, the group believed that having them on open display was a breach of the law. A spokesman for the Television and Entertainment Licensing Authority (TELA) said requiring submission for classification before posters could be displayed was a sensitive issue as it affected freedom of publication. The spokesman said TELA needed to consider public opinion before taking any decision.
