UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said this in response to a question raised by Innercity Press on Sri Lanka at the daily UN press briefing held yesterday (Friday).

The spokesman was asked to comment on reports that in the run-up to the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Colombo, there has been a lot of controversy about freedom of the press.

“About freedom of the media, that is something that the Secretary-General firmly believes is hugely important.  It’s important that journalists should be able to carry out their work unencumbered and free of intimidation,” the UN spokesman said.http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/33258-us-issues-worldwide-travel-alert.html
