MEAA joins global condemnation of treatment of journalists in Sri Lanka

The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA), the professional association and industry advocate for Australia’s journalists, join with the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) in raising concerns over death threats issued to prominent Sri Lankan journalist and free speech campaigner Sunil Jayasekara. MEAA is also concerned about the role of government agencies in sabotaging a media workshop in Colombo during the weekend.
