Submission + - Venezuela bans hostile videogames and toys. (prensa-latina.cu)

An anonymous reader writes: In an effort to "help improve child education and prevent misconduct", the venezuelan government began enforcing a law on March the 3rd banning war videogames and toys, imposing a fine and 2.5 years in prison on the production, distribution, sale, hiring and use of video games and toys inciting violent behavior.

Alberto Federico Ravell, former director of opposing news network Globovision, has already come on twitter denouncing the authorities for seizing imported gameboy, wii and playstation 3 consoles, due to considering them violent.
