Mano Ganesan condemns Siyatha attack, urges IGP to investigate

[TamilNet, Saturday, 31 July 2010, 01:52 GMT]
Leader of Democratic Peoples Front (DPF) and Convener of Civil Monitoring Commission, Mano Ganesan, has unequivocally condemned the arson attack on the Siyatha Media Network studio in Colombo on Friday morning. In a statement released Friday, Ganesan, while condemning the attack in the strongest of terms, noted that the incident had taken place in the very heart of the city location in close proximity to the major political and military installations of Sri Lanka.

“The culture behind this attack is not new but the unabated continuation of violence against media freedom and democracy in this country,” Ganesan said in a statement released by DPF media office.

According to the statement the culprits had gotten away without being noticed even though there were a large number of law enforcement officers in surrounding areas.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of Police (IGP) has been directed by the Sri Lanka Government to initiate special investigation on the arson attack at the media office located at Hunupitiya Lake Road in Colombo.

The incident resulted in two workers being injured.
