News First, a Sri Lankan TV network has complained to the Hatton police that Minister Palani Digambaram’s press officer, Aruna Ratnayake, removed its microphone at a public function held in connection with the National Breastfeeding Week on 30th July.

It says the removal of its microphone amounts to harassment and a violation of right to information.

News First says it had received an invitation, dated July 28, 2017, from the Government Information to cover the event.

The microphone was removed before Minister Digambaram addressed the gathering.
