Sri Lankan Army intelligence monitoring social media

Sri Lankan Army intelligence is monitoring ‘changes taking place’ on social media, the country’s Army Commander said last week.

Army Commander Mahesh Senanayake said the Army Intelligence Unit was monitoring changes “due to the fact that could have an impact on the security of the people and the country”, Daily News reports.

The commander said that this would be a topic at Sri Lanka’s upcoming Defence Seminar in Colombo.

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
