Advice sought to ban anti-govt. websites

Media ministry secretary W.B. Ganegala has sought the attorney general’s advice to act against websites that publish news detrimental to Sri Lanka and the government.

Mr. Ganegala has told Hiru FM radio that these websites had published falsehoods against the country and the president in the past.

Meanwhile, SLCERT says it is receiving complaints on a daily basis against websites operating from overseas against Sri Lanka.

Its senior IT engineer Rohana Palliyaguru said they could only block local access to these websites.

There are alternative methods such as to access even blocked websites, such as Tamilnet, he added.
