The Army Commander should have complained to the Press Council instead of the CID.

The Uthayan Editor must seek legal redress through a FR Petition to the Supreme Court.

I am an Uthayan reader. I know Uthayan provoke Tamil minds to go against the country. Going to CID doesn't mean that had done something wrong. Let the CID to handle it. Its a professional investigation body in the country. If LTTE asked to report, the editor will not return. Do not forget that era. So its not LTTE have told to report

What do you mean by'to go against the country'
The country belongs to each and everyone, but at present it seems to belong to thugs,corrupt politicians,jud iciary,police,a rmy,media,monks ,underworld.
Re-establish rule of law/anti-bribery/
Maintain equality
Sri Lanka belongs to all the multiethnic groups/multi religious
And NOT solely to the chosen people

When facts are exposed. Those at the receiving end seek assistance from the CID, in a manner to frighten the outspoken, which will not last long.
