Forty-six local and international media rights organizations have called on President Mahinda Rajapaksa to uphold the human rights of Sri Lankan journalists in accordance with international law.

In a joint letter titled “Stop the War on Journalists in Sri Lanka”, they also request Mr. Rajapaksa to acknowledge and act on concerns expressed by a wide range of international organizations.

“We strongly urge that you extend your commitment to protect all journalists and media workers in Sri Lanka and take action to ensure freedom of expression is not curtailed, officially or unofficially,” it said.
