SL minister to file motion against 13A

Sri Lanka's Media Minister, Champika Ranawaka will file a motion in parliament against the 13th Amendment and the provincial council system, reports the Colombo Gazette.

Arguing that granting land and police powers would be 'dangerous', Ranawaka said that if the Northern Provincial Council elections go ahead and the TNA comes to power it would use the 13th Amendment to divide the country.

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
