    He was arrested for " contempt of court". Nothing to do with media freedom. This is where we all go wrong. This type of foolish comments can lead to another "Moon Panel".

    Is Ban Ki, Moon wrong?

    SureshP Tuesday, 26 April 2011 01:16 AM

    Freedom of the Press in Sri Lanka: we score number 158 in the freedom of the press ranking, world-wide. Out of 196... What freedom of the press you are talking about?
