Regulator bans Tamil website after Sri Lanka media ministry complaint

Sri Lanka's Telecommunication Regulatory Commission on Saturday prohibited a Tamil website for alleged 'incitement', the Sunday Times reports. 
The decision was made based on a complaint by the media and justice ministry, the TRC director reportedly told the paper. 
"The complaint was that the website was carrying false propaganda about judicial decisions given in the north, criticising judges and lawyers and posting news inciting the public in the north," the director was quoted as saying. 
"The particular website was using Sri Lanka Telecom as the service provider and the site had been blocked until investigations were completed by the defence ministry and the media ministry," he reportedly further added.
