10 years without Lasantha (Pics) Featured

Today (Jan. 08) marks ten years since the brutal murder of veteran Journalist Lasantha Wickrematunge.

A graveside memorial was held today at the Borella Cemetery and was attended by family and friends, former colleagues and others, including those from political and diplomatic circles.

Today’s memorial also paid tribute to other journalists slain in the line of duty.

One of the prominent and leading journalists in Sri Lanka as well as an outspoken critic of the Rajapaksa government, Mr. Wickrematunge was killed on Jan. 08, 2009 by two gunmen while on his way to work.

Even a decade later, the murder investigation is yet underway with no significant results and the killers roaming free.
