Five media condemns threats to TNL TV/Radio

Five local media organizations have strongly condemned death threats to TNL chairman Shan Wickremesinghe and general manager Sudath Jayasundara

In a statement, they say the threats were made by several individuals with business connections with the government.

The organizations urge authorities to conduct an impartial and extensive investigation and bring the culprits to book.

The most immediate reason for the threats being issued is TNL’s Isira Radio having carried a programme on the collapse of the stock exchange and the drug mafia’s connections to it.

The five media organizations also urge the authorities to ensure the safety of Messrs. Wickremesinghe Jayasundara.
