Bangkok, April 26, 2013--The Committee to Protect
Journalists welcomes the decision by Thailand's Ministry of Culture to reverse
its earlier imposed ban
on the locally produced documentary Fah
Tam Pan Din Soon (Boundary).
"The ministry's reversal of its censorship order against
director Nontawat Numbchapol's documentary is a step in the right direction,"
said Shawn Crispin, CPJ's senior Southeast Asia representative. "We would
encourage government authorities to reconsider their banning of various other
politically-oriented films, books and websites currently censored."
