In Sri Lanka, UNP Parliamentarian Karu Jayasuriya said that Sri Lanka will be cornered by right thinking members of the international community and eventually this country will be blacklisted as a place where there is no media freedom or right to information.

Issuing a statement on the arrest of nine employees of the ‘Sri Lanka Mirror’ and ‘Lanka X News’ websites and the Police raid on the building where the two web sites were operated Mr. Jayasuriya stated: “This behavior of the government will substantiate the idea that the government will only allow the publication of ‘sunshine stories’ – the stories which only serve the propaganda mechanism of the government and its allies.
