Colombo reinstates visa to Al Jazeera TV crew

[TamilNet, Saturday, 13 November 2010, 18:21 GMT]
Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapakse Saturday instructed the Immigration and Emigration Department to issue visas to a media group of Al-Jazeera television to cover his swearing-in event for a second term on November 19, Colombo electronic media reported quoting Presidential Secretariat sources.

Presidential Secretariat sources commenting on the earlier report that Al-Jazeera television crew were refused permission to enter the country following the exposure of alleged images of bodies and execution-style killings said to have taken place in the final battle in the Wanni war front on November 11, said that there is no reason to deny the group visas.
