Lawyers for Democracy accuses the state-run ITN of branding journalists and civil society representatives as terrorists and traitors for their participation at the UNHRC session in Geneva.
A statement signed by advocate Lal Wijenayake on behalf of the LD urges the public not to be misled by this mudslinging propaganda aimed at provoking them against lawyers and civil society representatives.
This television channel has been targeting LD activist and senior lawyer J.C. Weliamuna, who is a rendering a yeoman service as a lawyer and a leading human rights activist, says the statement.
It adds that awareness will be raised among the public against this false propaganda.
