BBC journalist Azzam Ameen, who had been asked to report to the Cyber Crimes Unit of the CID this morning (10) over a tweet, said the Police asked him not to visit the CID.

“I was informed by the Police via phone and through a letter this morning that it was not necessary for me to visit the CID. They regretted any inconvenience caused,” Mr. Ameen tweeted yesterday morning adding that “I am grateful to those who expressed their support to me in many ways on this issue.”

Earlier, it was reported that  Mr. Ameen was summoned over a tweet made by the President’s Media Division’s (PMD) twitter handle in response to one of the tweets made by President Maithripala Sirisena’s official twitter account.

    Be happy that you got a letter or a phone call. 4 years back there would have been a white van at your doorstep to pass on the 'message' to you.

    our journalist can learn a lot from this guy. He is more to the point.

    will Thursday, 10 May 2018 06:47 PM

    You are lucky,as the local rep. for powerful BBC, so last stage they were careful not to touch you,but design is clear, they won't tolerate criticism,if a simple simon he would have to face cruel police brutalities, every one be careful, basic human right

    This is the strength of this government, allowing the institutions to make mistakes and then helping the correct as well, and he was sent a letter regret. I say its a step forward in this Yahapalana government
