The CID is presently carrying out a raid at the premises where the Lanka Mirror Website and the Sri Lanka X news website carryout their operations, UNP MP Mangala Samaraweera said.

He told the Daily Mirror that the premises located at Mahindananda Road, Pitta Kotte is being searched by some 20-25 CID Officers. “The Search warrant they posses is for the premises and has no mention of the websites. However they are not telling us what they are searching for,” he said.

He further added that he had information to suggest that a group of people have also surrounded the home of the Editor of the Lanka Mirror Ruwan Ferdinand, located in Narahenpita. (DS)

    Disgraceful Democracy.
    High time the journalists, the people and the entire country loving people did something about this unfair and corrupt practice of a dictatorship.
    Too much has been allowed to happen for too long and unless we tell them it is time up, it will only get worse,

    Rulers & Leaders needs something to cover up the exsisting Cost of Living, so this is only a drama until the elections are over, that's all. simple.

    Black Mamba Friday, 29 June 2012 12:08 PM

    Elections are here again and the Govt. blood hounds have been let loose!!!

    Fusion Friday, 29 June 2012 12:15 PM

    I don't particularly like Mr. Mangala Samaraweera, but I fully support your right to publish anti-government material and organize activities against any government. The current GoSL is getting more and more insecure!

    No government has authority to seal a newspaper until proven guilty or broken law by the judiciary. Therefore these culprits should be brought to justice and punished and claim for damages. Also the video clip is a great propaganda to educate the masses of GOSL corruption. Great job Mr. Samaraweera.
