The government has instructed security establishments not to take media personnel for public and house inspections and requested media not to telecast such incidents, the Presidential Media Division said. 

“President Maithripala Sirisena had instructed the security agencies not to allow the media or any other external personnel to partake when conducting search operations,” it said. 

“After the Easter Sunday terror attack, special safety measures have been conducted countrywide under the supervision of the Defence Ministry and following the instruction of the President.  

Under the programme, public places, houses and vehicles would come under inspection continuously. When broadcasting video footage regarding the investigations conducted to ensure the national security, false allegations could be spread over persons. 

The President had taken this decision after considering requests made by religious leaders and to not inconvenience any community and to help smooth investigations. The President also requests all media personnel to give publicity for the investigations without making obstructions,” the Presidential Media Division finished. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
