    Isnt it possible that some Sri Lankan journalists get in to the business of provoking the government so that they can claim that they face death threats?

    The best examples are the crowd at the Sunday Leader, like Sonali Samarasinghe and Frederica Jansz. They kept abusing people unprofessionally and then complained of deah threats and then fled to rich countries.

    This method of migration when they cant get a Green Card is pathetic. If journalists’and other government critics’lives are threatened, how are people like that van der Pooten guy, Gamini Weerakoon who are really trying to pick a fight (but Rajapakses dont seem to take any notice of them). How is Jehan Perera, Paikiasothy and other NGO operators moving around, abusing with impunity.

    This bullshit has to end. Anyone can criticise in Sri Lanka, decently.
