Mass Media and Information Minister Keheliya Rambukwella yesterday described the attack on the Sri Lanka-e-News media institution as a malicious attempt to place the government in an intricate position.
The Minister said that it has been a continuous practice of certain criminals to attack media personnel and media institutions when there are elections on the card and on occasions there were issues related to Sri Lanka in the international arena and thereby place the blame on the government to discredit the government.
He added that this fact becomes very clear when incidents relating to assassinations of media personnel, attack on media personnel and media institutions are examined thoroughly.
