Sri Lanka: Silencing dissent
Since the resumption of armed conflict in Sri Lanka in 2006, threats to the media and media freedom have become very serious. Amnesty International is concerned that measures to curb the media breach Sri Lanka’s obligations, particularly under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The first part of this report sets out international standards and the domestic legal framework in respect of freedom of expression. The second part summarizes increasing attacks on freedom of expression outside of the immediate context of the conflict.
