Restrictions on Viber access to be lifted from midnight

The restrictions imposed on access to Viber will be lifted from midnight tonight, the Government information department said.

The Government also said that restrictions imposed on other social media networks in Sri Lanka will be lifted soon.

The restrictions were imposed after it was found that social media was used to spread hate among the communities in Kandy recently.

Communal clashes broke out in Kandy last week with several Muslim owned property being attacked. (Colombo Gazette)
