The British Government today urged Sri Lanka to prosecute all those who have been leading and inciting religious and ethnic hatred.

The British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka James Dauris said that thousands in Sri Lanka have been frightened and worse by ugly violence in recent weeks.

“Really important that the government and authorities apply the law and prosecute all those who have been leading and inciting religious and ethnic hatred, including through social media,” the High Commissioner tweeted.

The High Commissioner also said that it was good to hear that Viber is unblocked and working again. He also shared the hopes of everyone who wants to have Facebook and other social media platforms fully working quickly.

“Free social media has a key part to play in successful social and economic development in modern Sri Lanka,” he tweeted. (Colombo Gazette)
