PM says action will be taken against careless media (video)

Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has told parliament that action would have to be taken if the media was not careful in its reporting.

However, joint opposition’s Dullas Alahapperuma objected, saying the government was intimidating Ada Derana television.

The media secretary has called for explanation from the TV station over an alleged distortion of a remark made by the president.
