The importance of protecting media freedom was emphasised by Parliamentarian Sajith Premadasa on Thursday.

UNP MP Sajith Premadasa expressed these views; “Yesterday we witnessed an independent court in the country granting a historic verdict on behalf of media freedom. We consider the verdict that was given yesterday as a resounding victory for media freedom in the country.”

He added; “the policy of the United National Party is to ensure the right to information and establish a free media in the country. No matter who criticises, no matter what anyone says, the public representative appointed by the people’s mandate must understand the truth; bear allegations that are levelled and engage in a political journey by correcting one’s mistakes.”

“I wish the Sirasa Media Network the strength to reveal the various malpractices taking place in the country, corruption, threats, thefts, mistakes and illegal activities that are taking place so that the truth prevails,” stated UNP MP, Sajith Premadasa.
