EU concern over media harassment

E-mail Print
The Heads of Mission of the European Union have noted with concern the action taken against the Sri Lanka Mirror and the Lanka news websites. Issuing a statement the European Union said Freedom of the media is a vital element in democratic societies and journalists must be able to carry out their legitimate work without fear of harassment or intimidation.

Any action intended to intimidate independent journalism and or limit freedom of expression is in contradiction to UN human rights standards.
