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.

    Concern with advise ok but not intimidation, threats and bullying. Would you like if someone interfered in your personal affairs?

    "Any action intended to intimidate independent journalism and or limit freedom of expression is in contradiction to UN human rights standards."
    First the Indians, then the Americans and now the EU.
    All these countries helped us to win the war and still willing to help us if the Govt will do the right thing.

    Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Nodrog Monday, 02 July 2012 02:26 AM

    Ok to be concerned but do not interfere.

    Hello Nodrog... A concern without interference yields no result....
