OSCE Asks Tajikistan To Unblock YouTube

Posted: July 29, 2012 in Censorship, Confrontation

Local media reported that Tajikistan’s state-run communication service asked Internet providers on July 26 to block access to YouTube.

The OSCE representative on freedom of the media, Dunja Mijatovic, said in a statement that “only courts should be allowed to decide whether websites can be blocked, not authorities.”

She said blocking deprives citizens of their right to know, to receive, and impart information about development in their own country.”
