Global media rights groups condemn “culture of impunity and indifference” in Sri Lanka
The International Press Freedom Mission today condemned a “culture of impunity and indifference” over killings and attacks on journalists in Sri Lanka. Since the beginning of the New Year, both the killing of a senior editor and the attack on the facilities of a popular independent TV channel have led to a total paralysis of the media community. Launching a new report, “Media Under Fire: Press Freedom Lockdown in Sri Lanka”, the International Mission criticised the Government over its inaction and failure to take the attacks, murder and assassination of reporters seriously.
