Burma: Government Removes More Than 2000 Names From ‘Blacklist’


More than 2,000 names have been excised from Burma’s blacklist, according to a report published in state newspaper The New Light of Myanmar.

However, 4,083 names remain on the list, according to the statistics quoted in the article.

“The government is lifting the ban on them in accord with the reforming system,” said the paper’s English edition.

The list includes “companies and persons from all fields including media men”.

The article however fails to mention why more than 4,000 people remain on the country’s blacklist and when they might be removed as well.
