Report: Globe International 2009 Mongolia media freedom report (IFEX, 1 June 2010)
Despite the existence of laws and regulations that protect free media, violations of freedom of the press and against professional journalists continue to occur. Violations of journalists' rights lead to restrictions on media freedom and prevent journalists from disseminating the truth, thus causing serious damage to democracy and the public interest. Although prohibited by law, both overt and covert censorship still exist in Mongolia. Restraints placed on media outlets and on the work of journalists violate the nature and principles of democracy.
