The Pugoda Magistrate ordered to suspend the activities of Lanka e News website until court case against it is over. The Magistrate ordered the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) to suspend the operations of the website temporarily.

Court made this direction when the case against Lanka e news journalist Shantha Wijesooriya who was arrested by the Kirindiwala police on April 25, 2011 for allegedly committing contempt of court by publising a news item, was taken up this morning.


The Magistrate also ordered to further remand journalist  Wijesooriya until next hearing on, May 12, 2011.

Meanwhile, spokesman for Lankaenews website said that an appeal will be filed in the Court of Appeal against the Magistrate's order.

    Jay Ranaweera Friday, 29 April 2011 01:46 PM

    democrazy does not mean publishing LIES-LIES-LIES!

    sam Thursday, 28 April 2011 01:36 PM

    Pradeep, so you reckon the only respectable and responsible media that should be allowed to operate are Daily News, Rupavahini and ITN and since of late Island?

    Cris Friday, 29 April 2011 09:12 AM

    So you mean, if the rulers are ruining the country, you cannot disclose, but have to be silent or hide it from public?

    Lamaya Thursday, 28 April 2011 01:47 PM

    Whats wrong with lake house? We have been buying the daily news for years... its the best paper to get to know about the latest developments in the country. Unlike other news papers.

    Grumpy Friday, 29 April 2011 02:38 PM

    Lamaya, you need to grow up. Looks like you have not read other newspapers for years.

    wara Saturday, 30 April 2011 08:10 AM

    Common Man Saturday, 30 April 2011 08:33 AM

    Regime is using 2/3 Majority & all election victories for development. ha ha..

    citizen1 Friday, 29 April 2011 04:20 AM

    kumar Friday, 29 April 2011 05:57 PM

    WHERE IS THE MEDIA FREEDOM????

    jayasiri Friday, 29 April 2011 09:27 PM

    The court is independent of the government. It is not the government that suspended the LEN. It was a case of contempt of court, and publishing lies and lies.

    California Thursday, 28 April 2011 05:05 PM

    Ok I am will to start a new site, what are they going to do.

    Rohana Bandara Saturday, 30 April 2011 12:26 AM

    Lanka E News is the legitimate child of LTTE+JVP Brotherhood.

    simple mind Thursday, 28 April 2011 05:25 PM

    Especially the animal husbandry section.

    afscan Thursday, 28 April 2011 05:39 PM

    Media Freedom."""""" Elakiri Maladosha""

    P***ya Saturday, 30 April 2011 01:08 AM

    How about government media ? All of them should ban immediately as they are telling lies daily

    Gon Banda Saturday, 30 April 2011 01:48 AM

    Does Sri Lanka has an image to be destroyed? The wohle world knows what is happening in Sri Lanka.

    dring Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:26 AM

    Enewscan publish their articles like "SL navy Kills Indian fishermen" in Tamilnet now.

    zorro Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:44 AM

    democrazy!

    Labby Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:47 AM

    Every darn thing seems to be politicized now.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:45 AM

    Mr Bank Ki Moon, for your information, pls.

    Saman Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:48 AM

    According to my idea Court should issue order permanently close down lake house news paper. I think this order should issue before 10 or 15 years ago.

    Dha Saturday, 30 April 2011 03:20 AM

    බොරු බේගල් වලට නිමාවක්

    mike Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:56 AM

    Very good decision. Media freedom shud not be misused. Journalist shud also hv ethics what they preach to others. Everyone knows who is behind lanka e-news. The news was bogus & crap far fm the truth. Now bring the editor & give him 100 lashes in public.

    tite Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:43 AM

    good move by the courts.They publish very harmful articals on sri lanka to tarnis its image. Looks like LEN has some grudge against MR and GOTA and destroying the Sri Lnakas image very badly.

    Ceylonese Saturday, 30 April 2011 04:09 AM

    "Like" and "Dislike" are at unusual numbers. Probably planned by LEN "supporters".

    loku putha Thursday, 28 April 2011 07:44 AM

    gud gud...very very good.....:D
    here after they wont publish any fake news!!

    Deshapriya Saturday, 30 April 2011 04:47 AM

    the rating of comments says it all, what the common man's sentiment.

    Sri Lankan Friday, 29 April 2011 07:14 AM

    Media freedom does not mean you can write things harmful to the country.

    Paul Thursday, 28 April 2011 08:30 AM

    The government is asking for more adverse reports similar to UN's.Paul.

    Pradeep Thursday, 28 April 2011 08:39 AM

    No room for media prostitution.
    Only respectable and responsible media should be allowed.
    Good move by the long arm of law.

    chryshan Friday, 29 April 2011 08:01 AM

    Media freedom?? From which country are you? In Sri Lanka we do not have things like that.

    PAPA Saturday, 30 April 2011 05:43 AM

    That particular web site is a total rubbish...
