Prof. K. Sivathamby, Free Media Movement representative and freelance journalist Mr. Ravi Chandralal, Sunday Times Deputy Editor Mr. Rajpal Abeynayake paid tribute to the slain journalist.

"Though many believe that Sivaram loved only certain regions of Sri Lanka, from the close friendship I had, which transcended racial politics, I can honestly say that Sivaram loved Sri Lanka, north, east, south and west," said Mr Abeynayake.

Former Island editor Mr. Gamini Weerakoon, Hindu Correspondent in Sri Lanka, Mr. Sambandan, former Daily news Editor Mr. Lakshman Gunasekera, civil society leaders Mr. Pakiasothy Saravanamuttu, Jehan Perera and Sunila Abeysekara also attended memorial sevice.
