Malaysian film censors are being accused of having double standards. “Spotlight is on the Film Censorship Board with questions raised over how it rates movies and if they can be re-rated in the name of profit,” wrote The Malay Mail on 22 October 2013.
The issue cropped up after filmmaker and producer Datuk Yusof Haslam’s latest film KL Gangster 2 was re-rated from 18 to P13.
