FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION SRI LANKA

For press freedom by Sunanda Deshapriya

Singer Sunil Perera censored by pro Rajapaksha crowd

 
A function at Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo three days ago had to be abandoned halfway after angry guests tried to attack Gypsies leader Sunil Perera over a song sung by him.
The song in question had made farcical references to president Mahinda Rajapaksa, according to sources at the hotel.
Several invitees to the function had exchanged words with the singer, and tried to manhandle him.
The function that was due to go on until early hours of the next morning had to be stopped around midnight due to the situation, said the sources
