[TamilNet, Friday, 07 May 2010, 15:15 GMT]
Declaring assets and liabilities by journalists is not mandatory but it
is optional, said Sri Lanka's Minister for Media Keheliya Rambukwella
after assuming the post. The government earlier declared that it is
mandatory for journalists to declare their assets and liabilities
Mr. Rambukwella further said however it is legal to ask journalists to
declare their assets.
The Sri Lankan Department of Information last month sent forms to each
journalist to declare their assets and liabilities.
