FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION SRI LANKA

For press freedom by Sunanda Deshapriya

IUSF president Sanjeewa Bandara

The arrest of Lanka e News journalist Bennet Rupasinghe is an act of pure hypocrisy states the Inter University Students Federation (IUSF).

A communiqu issued by the convener of IUSF Sanjeewa Bandara further states violence against the media and journalists continues unabated. Mr. Bennet Ruapsinghe the accuser has been made the accused. According to this theory of the government it is very easy to find perpetrators of earlier crimes. Mr. Lasanthe Wickrematunga would have shot himself. Mr. Prageeth Eknaligoda would have disappeared on his own will. Sirasa staff would have set fire to their own media establishment. A female journalist would have cut her own back with a razor knife.

The journalists who are subjected to violence and atrocities of the government and the group of thugs it maintains are made the accused and punished points out the communiqu.
