[ Xinhua ] - [ Mar 30, 2012 1:38:03 GMT ]

Sri Lanka is to file legal action against some websites which published defamatory articles on the Sri Lankan president and his family, an official said Thursday. Cabinet spokesman Lakshman Yapa Abeywardena told reporters on Thursday that he had submitted a report to President Mahinda Rajapaksa regarding websites which continuously target the president. Abeywardena said that while Sri Lankan newspapers and the electronic media can be monitored and approached for clarifications, it is difficult to do the same on the various websites which publish articles on Sri Lanka from unknown locations both in Sri Lanka and overseas.
