Journal Slapped for Bypassing Censor
11 April 2012
Burma’s censorship board has banned The Myanmar Post Global from publishing its supplementary pages for two weeks after the weekly news journal repeatedly failed to submit the two-page section for scrutiny, according to a report by the Democratic Voice of Burma. “We had breached the law so many times so they had to do this as a warning,” said a source at the journal. Under the 1962 Printers and Publishers Registration Law, publishers must submit material to censors before going to print. Despite a relaxation of media controls since last year, the law remains in effect.
