After decades of tight censorship of books, television, newspapers and the internet, Tunisian customs authorities will no longer demand censors’ clearance  to allow  the import of  print materials and films.

The country’s new government has promised the people full freedom of information and closed down the Ministry of Communications, which  was responsible for “filtering” foreign and domestic media.

Censorship was introduced by former president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali who fled to Saudi Arabia in the wake of mass-scale protests that eventually led to his ouster.
