Will block Facebook - Minister Tissa

In order to safeguard the Sri Lankan children from the harmful effects arising from the misuse of internet and Facebook, immediate measures will be taken to block it,  Child Development and Women's Affairs Minister - Tissa Karaliyedda says.

Speaking to 'Irida Divaina' newspaper, the minister has said that the it has been requested from the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) to ban websites with obscene content.

In return, the TRC has assured that it would do so, the minister added.

Probing into the Facebook related suicides of children recently and several similar incidents in the past, discussions to block Facebook are already underway, the minister further added.

Meanwhile, Director General of the TRC - Anusha Palpita says that measures to block Facebook can be considered if the government takes a policy decision on that regard and informs the TRC accordingly.

As Facebook has also affected the mental condition of youth as well as schoolchildren, the first measure should be adults educating the youngsters about on its' repercussions.

However, if that proves to be unsuccessful, blocking Facebook would be done as a last resort. However, modern technology makes it impossible to block or ban the website completely, he added.
If the Child Development and Women's Affairs ministry takes a policy decision on this regard and requests the TRC to stop Facebook from being accessed, possible measures to do so would be explored, Palpita added.

Goverment trying to ban Facebook - UNP

United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian Harin Fernando today charged that the Government fearing an anti-government uprising by the people was planning to ban Facebook using as an excuse a few controversial incidents that happened among the youth recently.

“The Government is planning to ban the Facebook social media network saying it is detrimental to the country because it is disadvantageous to the Government. Even the Arab Spring began through the Facebook. We are totally against this move. It is only two or three countries in the world that have banned Facebook. If we do this, we will be cornered internationally as a country that has deprived itspeople of their right to information,” Mr. Fernando said.

He said if the Government was unable to tackle its battle in Geneva; it should waste no time in resigning from office.

“The UNP is asking this Government to go if it is unable to tackle this international issue. It is sad to see the three ‘Cs’ -- Crime, Corruption and the soaring Cost of Living plaguing this country,” Mr. Fernando said.
