Telecommunications Law — ဆက်သွယ်ရေးဥပဒေ
The Telecommunications Law was created to regulate previously blocked networks and services but keeps many undemocratic rules with a non-independent government regulator, allowing communications to be closely monitored and users to be criminalised for what they say online.
