ICP Questions Ban Ki-moon On Colombo Telegraph ‘Ban’

The New York based Inner City Press has asked UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about whether he has a view on the ban on the Colombo Telegraph in Sri Lanka.

“Ban vaguely supports free press,” was the response, ICP tweeted a short while ago.

Inner City Press also asked if the Sri Lanka country team to the UN had any comments on the ban.

    CT,

    “The New York based Inner City Press has asked UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about whether he has a view on the ban on the Colombo Telegraph in Sri Lanka.”

    Ask then to ban frequently and get exposure, and increase readership.

    CT knows very well why it is banned in Sri Lanka. Better correct it.

    No US journalist ever call G.Bush as a liar or a criminal anywhere for his utter lies about the WMDs in Iraq.

    Lankan journalists should follow a self-censored journalism.

      I suggest you look up Michael Moore the file maker of Fahrenheit 9/11?

      I also suggest look up fox news, that will tell you how the treat Obama, none of them are blocked or more importantly killed !!

      Sometimes its better to keep your mouth shut than to open it and prove to the world your ignorance !

        Moore is treated as a “joker” in USA and not as a journalist!

        FOX never said anything against Bush but it supported Bush stories.

        USA never had a civil war in 30 years. So, your idiotic rants are not suitable for Sri Lanka now!

        That is after the war. USA treats Bush as their former President and no charges against him for creating more than 600,000 widows in Iraq.

    When was CT banned in Sri Lanka? I’m writing this from Nuwara eliya and visited CT yesterday and the day before.
    But,I was appalled to hear that minister Dalas has invited Ban Ki Moon to Sri Lanka,when he should be shunned as a leper for the double crossing he did with the Darusman report.

    “Ban vaguely supports free press,” was the response, —You have got to be kidding asking Ban for support on press freedom. He was elected to the chair for the simple reason that he has no balls and no teeth. As a general secretary he is a disgrace!

    Why should ICP or any one question Ban-Ki-Moon, the stupid ball-less ‘Buffoon’ !
