Feb 19, Colombo: Speaker of the Sri Lankan parliament Chamal Rajapaksa has said that the live telecast of parliamentary proceedings has been stopped due to threats received by the service providing company.

Rajapaksa told parliament that the CEO of the private company that had provided the facility free of charge had been threatened by some unknown persons.

The Speaker explained that some persons had threatened the CEO saying they would sue the company for telecasting live proceedings and debates where parliamentarians had engaged in mudslinging and character assassinations of each other.

He added that he would request the senior officials of the respective company to discuss the possibility of resuming the service.

The Speaker was questioned during the previous parliamentary sessions as to why the live telecast of proceedings has stopped.
