After the junta last Friday issued Order No. 97, prohibiting media from criticizing the junta and that any media outlet dare to criticize the junta would be shut down, on Monday night the junta’s National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) withdrew its order.
The latest announcement, issued Monday night, amended the Order No. 97, stating that it prohibits only the criticism made under dishonest intention with false information.
If any media professional breached the order No.97, the case will be forwarded to the journalistic council for ethical investigation.
