In their annual survey on political rights and civil liberties, Freedom House ranked Sri Lanka as “Not Free”, downgrading them significantly. The report, entitled “Freedom in the World 2013”, stated that Sri Lanka suffered one of the biggest declines this year, losing 9 points from 2009. The group cited “increasing corruption and an attempt to impeach the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court” as reasons for the country’s decline. Sri Lanka’s press has already been deemed “not free” by the US-based group. Courtesy – Tamil Guardian]]>
