MP slams censorship of Persian-language news

Iranian MP Ali Motahari says the censorship of Persian-language networks is not right and should be avoided.

IRNA reports that Motahari said: “We cannot restrict society’s access to news because of security reasons.” He added, however, that immoral websites should be blocked.

A committee comprised of officials from several Iranian government bodies determines which websites should be blocked for access in Iran.

Internet users in Iran use proxies to access many popular website that are blocked by the government.
