Sri Lankan Government blocks another news website

As reported by the BBC today,

International media watchdogs have condemned the blocking of another Sri Lankan news website by the authorities. Paris based Reporters Without Borders (RSF) says Sri Lanka authorities have blocked Lanka News Web after the website published a news item on President’s eldest son, Namal Rajapaksa. The RSF has also condemned Namal Rajapakse’s alleged seizure of news media videos following an assault by displaced people in Menik Farm camp.

No surprise that the news reports on this website from a senior Government MP admitting to the murder of Lasantha Wickremetunge and the Chairperson of the APRC noting that the President is not interested in the devolution of power could not be accessed from Sri Lanka yesterday.
