Burma's reporters say Myanmar's media is not protecting media freedom: poll
The Free Expression Myanmar group of activists and its partners questioned 200 Myanmar correspondents between January and April, almost half of whom thought they had less liberty as a journalist than a year before. "The group said in a poll that it had reported that reports that said "journalists are disappointed that the federal administration has not implemented its electoral programme to enhance press freedoms.
Myanmar was governed by the army for almost 50 years, but in early 2016 the affairs of state were passed to Nobel Peace Prize winner Suu Kyi. It maintains oversight of the relevant safety departments, as well as the Home and Defence Departments. It comes after Reporters Without Borders of Paris last weeks Myanmar fell six places out of 180 countries in its 13th place index of media freedoms, leading the poll in terms of litigation against reporters and barriers to infiltration.
"The group said in its statement, "Journalists are becoming more and more convinced that the regime, in Myanmar, including that of the armed forces, is the greatest menace to Myanmar's free press, both through the continuing application of old repressive legislation, which it does not really want to change, and through the passage of new repressive one. A number of US legislators showed their support for Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo and other detained reporters on World Press Liberty Day.
When they were arrested, the journalists had been working on an inquiry into the murder of 10 Muslim Rohingya men and young men in a small town in the West Burmese state of Rakhine. "Freedom of the press day is very important for us," Wa Lone said on Wednesday after the last hearings on the footsteps of a Yangon Courts.

By and large, the document outlines 12 different strategies, from prioritising labour-intensive companies to privatising some state-owned companies, but there were no details or blueprints for achieving the targets.
"In one of the points, the administration said: "To build the necessary manpower for promoting the economy and developing technology and training. Sid Naing, M. Naing, M. Stopes' UK National Health Commissioner, who was also present, said that many of those present were frustrated by the inconvenience.
As Suu Kyi, the country's political leader, has concentrated her effort on the country's fraught economic engagement, the privatization of the NLD has become more and more questionable. After two months' delays in the reform of an capital expenditure committee that led to more than 100 project delays, the German and international governments have since April granted approval for only 19 investments only.
Suu Kyi on Friday encountered members of two groups of people belonging to different nationalities, among them members of the United Wa State Army, which was considered the biggest and most influential group in the state. Those who oversee large areas on the Myanmar-China frontier have largely ignored the peacemaking processes initiated by former President Thein Sein.
