No doubt motivated by CNN’s sensationalistic coverage of the game, an Argentinean politician has taken the bait and warned that the controversial game RapeLay violates the country’s criminal codes.
Argentina’s Ministry of Justice called RapeLay (translated) a “clear vindication of the crimes of sexual abuse, violation, against sexual integrity and discrimination against the women,” and warned the populace that the sale or commercialization of games featuring explicit sexual activities is in direct opposition to article 128 of Argentina’s penal code. Those who break such laws are subject to prison terms ranging from six months to four years.
Attorney General Julio Alak (pictured) said that the country is taking steps to ensure that the game cannot enter the country. He also warned ISPs that they could incur sanctions for allowing access to the game online.
While the translation is a little shaky, it also appears that Argentina’s Secretary of Justice Héctor Masquelet is using the controversial game to promote legislation that would regulate the content of videogames.
