Myanmar holds off on press law following criticism - Article Photos 6/10

In this March 14, 2013 photo, Kyaw Min Swe, editor-in-chief of the weekly journal "The Voice," speaks on his mobile phone in Yangon, Myanmar. Myanmar's newly energized press corps is calling on the government to revise a proposed new publishing law, saying it will mark a severe setback to press freedoms and replace the country's old censorship regime with other forms of repression. Kyaw Min Swe, editor-in-chief of the private weekly The Voice, said the speaker of Parliament's lower house did not allow debate on the legislation "because many media organizations have sent letters of criticism" to parliamentary officials. Legislators were in session until Monday evening and were not immediately available. "This draft law is nothing but a mechanism to control the media," Kyaw Min Swe said. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
