Burma Ends Censorship

Military Junta began enforcing strict censorship in 1964.


Burma has abolished censorship of the country's media, the information ministry has announced.

The Press Scrutiny and Registration Department (PSRD) said that as of Monday, reporters would no longer have to submit their work to state censors before publication.

Burma has long kept a tight control over all aspects of its media.

But the civilian government has been gradually easing restrictions since taking office last year.
