Sri Lanka: Banning independent media?

Free Media Sri Lanka reports – “Defence Secretary calls journalists ‘traitors’ and calls for ban on independent media”.


  • Not Indipendent Media. all Media who help for Terrorisom will ban.

  • chandana

    Anyone familiar with Sri Lanka media or its traditions, where government is openly and severely criticized ( if you are not familiar, read the main newspapers and their websites and see what i mean) know that such a thing is impossible.
    This is another canard by pro-terrorists masquerading as free media, hitting out at their paymasters’ losses on and off the battlefield.
