    This is not the first attack on media incident and it definitely wont be the last. True is the saying "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

    One more nail on the coffin of media freedom in Sri Lanka.

    Man B Friday, 30 July 2010 01:46 AM

    Media Freedom ?

    spark Friday, 30 July 2010 08:01 AM

    But we voted for them "freeeely".

    makalu Friday, 30 July 2010 02:04 AM

    Dear Freinds,
    All these incidents are normal things in Sri Lanka. So nothing to worry. nothing abnormal.

    spark Friday, 30 July 2010 08:02 AM

    Blind majority.

    Ranjan Friday, 30 July 2010 02:17 AM

    MEDIA FREEDOM AT IT'S BEST. THIS WILL BE ANOTHER UNSOLVED CASE N SURELY THE IGP WILL SAY THERE WAS NO SUCH INCIDENT.

    Lawrance Friday, 30 July 2010 02:30 AM

    The results of lawlessness and allowing political criminals to operate freely!

    I am sure the Police will find them on their famous "Catch & Release' program, as what happened to MBC Networks....

    mata nikang hithuna Friday, 30 July 2010 04:16 AM

    this is just after the request by Preident Mahinda Rajapakse, to the public " do their part " OK, ITS DONE. Now please do your part to find out who the culprits are.

    roshan and Liz Wickr Friday, 30 July 2010 04:27 AM

    This is not good for the image of the country,specially as things are looking better lately.The Police should take stern action quickly.

    Ruwan Friday, 30 July 2010 04:28 AM

    Media freedom at it's best for mirical of Asia.

    xlntgson Friday, 30 July 2010 09:51 AM

    Sigh of relief, after all a petrol bomb and no one died!

    Island Watch Friday, 30 July 2010 04:31 AM

    Armed Gang? oh.. no body else "Anthare"

    pusa Friday, 30 July 2010 09:51 AM

    From where did you find that nail.
    All nails are already on the coffin.
    May Media Freedom attend Nibbana.

    mata nikang hithuna Friday, 30 July 2010 04:39 AM

    the public has done their part as you requested. now its time to do your part and catch the culprits.

    jason Friday, 30 July 2010 05:29 AM

    This is bad. Yes, considering the fact that everything was looking so good for Sri Lanka after the war. Regardless of what a bunch of thugs think they can do, Voice of asia will always be the voice of truth and democracy. The voice that Sri Lanka needs.

    This is insane and ridiculous that a bunch of thugs can get away with doing this. I only hope that all the affected radio stations get back on air live and and fight back.

    Kamalanath Friday, 30 July 2010 05:42 AM

    Trying it's best to become miracle of Asia. Ha! Ha! Ha! ........

    Josh Friday, 30 July 2010 05:47 AM

    De Ja Vu of the attack on Sirasa some time back...

    and this happened at an High Security Zone... gosh... ive traveled passing that office so many times and seen the amount of army and police people around that place.. where were they when the "armed" gang came??

    channa Friday, 30 July 2010 06:31 AM

    Cannot come to conclusions before any investigations....

    Gunawathie Friday, 30 July 2010 12:40 PM

    Aiyo Siyatha, then you better change your logo to 'kotiya'.
