CHOGM to depict 'correct image of SL'

The Secretary of the Ministry of External Affairs, Karunathilake Amunugama said that through the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, the 'correct image of Sri Lanka could be depicted to the international'.

The Secretary of Ministry of Mass Media and Information, Charath Herath, said that over 700 journalists would be visiting Sri Lanka this November, and 'it is expected to escort these journalists to different areas of the island to show the correct condition of Sri Lanka'.

Last week, the Defence Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa asserted that 'LTTE-linked groups' had ensured that "despite the war having ended four years ago, the internal affairs of Sri Lanka have been kept at the forefront of the UNHRC’s Sessions as well as at the top of the agenda of several prominent international NGOs even in the recent past."

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
