Let’s be honest and admit it. The recent amendments to the Printing Presses and Publications Act (PPPA) have done nothing for press freedom. In fact, they show no signs of moving in that direction.
Relieving newspapers and other publications of the need to renew their license annually is of no use if they are still subject to the threat of getting their license suspended or revoked. The Home Minister still holds the power to implement that threat.
