The Telecommunications Law was introduced in 2013 and since then it has been used repeatedly to restrict freedom of speech and expression. Defamation charges under Section 66 (d) of the law have been brought against reporters, politicians and social media users. Many people have been arrested for criticising the military, the government or merely posting on Facebook.
Please write to the State Counsellor, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and the Attorney General, to call for the repealing of the Section 66 (d) of the Telecommunications Law.
