BBFC Decides to Contest Manhunt 2 Appeal Decision

 

The Video Appeals Committee had previously overturned the BBFC’s rejection of Manhunt 2, but now the Board is seeking to overturn that decision, as well as a suspension of the Committee’s decision to grant the game a classification.

According to a statement released by the BBFC, the Board believes that if its original decision isn’t allowed to stand there could be significant consequences on future classifications.

“The BBFC is contesting the VAC judgement because in the Board’s view, it is based on an approach to harm which is an incorrect interpretation of the Video Recordings Act. The VAC judgement, if allowed to stand, would have fundamental implications with regard to all the Board’s decisions, including those turning upon questions of unacceptable levels of violence.”

The statement also added that Manhunt 2 will not be classified until the outcome of the judicial review if the VAC’s decision is suspended.
