Journalists concerned about junta's move to clamp down

THE THAI Journalists Association (TJA) expressed concern Saturday at the ruling junta's order issued on Friday night barring all media from criticising its work.

The TJA warned that the order could lead to violations of people's right to be informed and would risk putting too much censorship power into the hands of the person in charge of censorship.

The association said many media organisations were already exercising restraint in order to ensure that their reports and analysis do not fan political conflict.
