SL ministerís men attack editorís house in Kaaththaankudi

[TamilNet, Sunday, 19 September 2010, 05:27 GMT]
The editor of ĎUraikalí, a weekly paper published in Kaththaankudi in Eastern Province, said that a gang of men of Sri Lanka minister M. L. A. M. Hisbulla have for the second time attacked his house in Kaaththaankudi on 13 September, in a complaint made to Kaaththaankudi police. A news item in the paper had contained information exposing the corruption in the Co-operative sector administered by the ministerís men was the reason for the attack, the editor, Rahmathulla, said and added that so far the police have failed to take action against the minister or his men.

The office of the weekly paper was first attacked by the ministerís men on 01.04.2009. The editor was threatened and the things in the office including computers had been smashed.

Freedom of the press violated by politicians like Sri Lanka minister Mervin Silva in the South and journalists abducted by ruling party politicians have become frequent incidents in Sri Lanka, journalists in Eastern Province said.

Sri Lanka government and its police turn a blind eye to these incidents, they added.
