Postal censorship


Censorship of mail may be carried out as a means of political control against political suspects or as a general measure. If such mail is considered to be subversive it may be confiscated and added to a political dossier on the person concerned. Mail may also be censored for possible pornographic or obscene content, where the law prohibits postal communication of such items.
