The attack on news website, LankaeNews was carried out by a group in an attempt to destroy the image of the Government in the eyes of the people, Media and Mass Media and Communications Minister, Keheliya Rambukwella said

Rambukwella added that the attack was carried out during a crucial time when nominations for local government elections have just been completed and that it is also a time when the Government holds a major responsibility in protecting the reputation of the country when the international community is focusing its attention on the country.

“Those responsible for the attack on LankaeNews have committed this heinous crime just so as to direct the blame on the Government and to create problems for us. Their intention is create unpleasantness for us,” Rambukwella said.

He said that the killings and abductions of journalists in the past have been proof of that. He said that President Mahinda Rajapaksa has ordered the Police and the Ministry of Media and Mass Media and Communications to carry out a thorough investigation on the matter.

“The Government has no intention whatsoever of creating trouble for media organizations or news websites since they have received the Government’s support to carry out their work as they should,” he said. (Olindhi Jayasundere)

    The International community was creating a bad image of our Govt. Now the locals are also doing this.

    UNP/JVP did this to put the blame on the govt.

    malkanthi Monday, 31 January 2011 09:40 AM

    This will have no impact on election, as people have already decided whom to vote! If free and fair it will clearly indicate the real choice of the people.

    Jagath Monday, 31 January 2011 09:42 AM

    If so catch the culprits & bring them before the law . Then we will belive you.
