As HRDs rely extensively on online platforms due to the very limited access to broadcast and print media, monitoring of the Internet is pervasive. Websites deemed sensitive or controversial, including news and human rights websites, have been blocked. Several HRDs have also had their personal pages on social networking sites hacked or blocked.
