Conflict of laws on international restriction of information


In countries where freedom of information is severely restricted, foreign correspondents researching information which would be available and free for distribution in their own country, may be interned or deported and their articles or photographs confiscated. Lack of information may result from government secrecy and the use of propaganda, and may serve to mask injustices, inequality and exploitation. International ill-feeling may result from a conflict of laws concerning information, or a conflict of information between nationalist and foreign viewpoints.
