FOLKS ARE ALWAYS SURPRISED AT HOW QUICKLY SUCH PLACES NORMALIZE:

Myanmar Eliminates Most Forms Of Media Censorship (PALASH R. GHOSH, August 20, 2012, IB Times)

The government of Myanmar (also known as Burma) has abolished censorship of the press, in yet another reform measure taken by President Thein Sein's nominally civilian government.

"Any publication inside the country will not have to get prior permission from us before they are published," Tint Swe, the chief of the government's Press Scrutiny and Registration Department, or PSRD, told the Agence France Presse agency. "From now on, our department will just carry out registering publications for keeping them at the national archives and issuing a license to printers and publishers."
