[url=http://www.wsws.org/articles/2011/apr2011/sril-a11.shtml]Sri Lanka: Opposition web site editor arrested[/url] April 11

Sujeewa Amaranath wrote:
More than 14 journalists and media workers have been killed since Rajapakse came to power in December 2005. Among the victims was Lasantha Wickrematunge, the former editor of the Sunday Leader, who was assassinated on January 8, 2009. The assailants were able to carry out his execution in broad daylight near a high-security-zone in Colombo and escape without difficulty. To this day, no arrest has been made and not even Wickrematunge's post-mortem report has been made public.
Other prominent journalists and editors who have criticised the government have been arrested. In 2008, J.S. Tissanayagam, a Sunday Times columnist and editor of the Outreach website and the North-Eastern Monthly, was detained under the draconian anti-terrorism laws on flimsy charges of supporting the separatist Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). He was convicted but, in order to stem international criticism, Rajapakse released him after more than two years in prison.
The assault on the media and journalists is part of a wider trampling on basic democratic rights.

Death squad government rules in Sri Lanka.
