Local Amendment of laws applicable to journalists

A committee will be appointed with representatives in the fields of media, marketing, education, law, administration, and economy to table recommendations to amend existing laws applicable to journalists and media institutions and to prepare policies and ethics.

The Cabinet paper with this proposal was tabled by Minister of Mass Media Dullas Alahapperuma.

The Government Information Department says attention was drawn towards Sri Lanka’s media policy with special attention to international laws, the operation of national and international media institutions and social and cultural identities.

Laws will be formulated for building necessary background to present media personalities with professional skills, education on the use and behaviour of media including social media, knowledge, understanding and communication strategies and supplying required facilities for digital technology considering global trends in the mass media and communication fields.
