"All the newspapers were taken under governement control."

I also read: That was under his control. Then in the first sentence, does "'s" ought to add to "government"?

    Thank you, Scrivener.

    Oh, yes, why could I write a sentence as "does...ought to add". Sorry, I paid no attention to that.

    And, the original sentence is quoted from my Collins Dict. So I asked the question.
