    Why do you jump into conclusion. Who told you that Camera phones should be banned as done in Saudi Arabia. The problem is you guys misusing the Camera phones and that`s the fact.

    No need to ban but tough actions should be taken against those who violates the rules.

    I think they are trying to warn the public of misuse in the sense of secretly taping something. There are tonnes of video clips online of couples making out and what not.

    There are many video cameras in air ports shopping centers schools and every where.Many many video cameras carry millions of peoples in the world.

    In Sri Lanka if you wants to take at a picture of your daughter`s walking in the street advice is first evacuate the street or face consequence of going to prison.Stupidity have no boundaries

    One place where the ban is in order in SL is the Banks where people depositing or withdrawing large sums of money can be photographed and become targets for abduction.

    I think one of the reasons is that some a.holes were taking upskirt pics of girls in buses, clubs, cafes etc and posting them on the web... In the past few weeks i`ve got at least a dozen of such videos that circulate in massive emailing lists... Lots of people don`t think before they forward such emails cos the subject on the video is completely innocent and those email can and will ruin their life :(

    There was a site featuring those videos and i think some sensible human being has taken action to take it down :)

    A ban is not the answer but educating public that they have the right to protest if a person is using the phone is a `suspicious` manner. And also educate the users of the consequences if they do invade someone`s privacy

    Camera Phones are used worldwided except some countries banning for their cultural reasons. However, it is widely used in the middle east countries as well whereas the cultural valuse are respected. If someone caught misusing and anyone reported to the authorities of misuse they would be dealt with in accordance with the Law. As far as Sri Lanka is concerned everything is law. From the Local Grama Sevaka to Politicians, Forces and the Home Gurds have the law in their hands to convict anyone against them. Using mobile Camera on others personal matters and exploiting is wrong and must be banned. What is clause for this in SL law books. Can anyone tell.

    Why use phones at all. We are under MR/Mugabe/sinhala taliban rule. We eat rice cake, rice bread and rice and more rice. We wear no clothes. We follow the rule of jungle. Of course, without any disrespect for respectable animals.
