Kenya arrests over banned Wolf of Wall Street film

Dozens of pirate DVD traders have been arrested in Kenya for selling banned copies of The Wolf of Wall Street.

Kenya Film Classification Board banned the Oscar-nominated film in January for its “extreme scenes of nudity, sex, debauchery, hedonism and cursing”.

But many Kenyans have already watched it on pirated copies sold in small DVD shops for about $0.57.

Those arrested could face a fine of up to $1,160 or several years in jail.

The new Martin Scorsese film is about the stockbroker Jordan Belfort and his real-life rise and fall in the financial world of 1980s-90s New York.
