Efforts should be made in various ways to spread true information and fight false news among the people, says MoI Union Minister

Union Minister for Information Maung Maung Ohn said it was very upset to see the hate speech and writings that provoke the conflict on social media. No matter how much the Ministry of Information’s media activities are obstructed, he would make every effort to ensure that the public receives accurate information and to fight false information, he said.
He remarked during the meeting with publishers at the Department of Printing and Publishing in Botahtaung Township, Yangon, on 8 May.
He also urged them to work together to do the right thing for the future of the country and the future of Myanmar society. He also added the prosecution of the publishers of the pornographic book under the law, saying that such a lawsuit is not a violation of the right to freedom of expression, but a legal action due to the violation of the provisions of the Printing and Publishing Law.
He said, “I would like to say that such action is systematic censorship of unethical writings that are unacceptable in our Myanmar society.” The Union minister added that today, the media activities aimed at disseminating accurate news and combatting false information in the country are being obstructed by unscrupulous persons in various ways.
He also stressed the need to take the writings seriously as today’s publications will remain as records in the future, calling on the printing/publishing business to act as per the relevant rules, regulations, and code of conduct. — Htun Htun/GNLM
