Then - Dec. 2009, Now July 2011

In December 2009 the government sponsored the printing of posters lauding The Sunday Leader for its story of December 13 that year titled ‘Gota Ordered Them To Be Shot.’ Last week the government once more sponsored the printing of posters this time chastising The Sunday Leader for its lead story of last Sunday July 17 titled, ‘Chinese Economic Hitmen And The Rajapaksas.’ Areas in close proximity to the offices of The Sunday Leader at Ratmalana were plastered with posters critical of the newspaper for having dared publish a story which showcased President Mahinda Rajapaksa unfavourably.
