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.
