The Hiru TV drone camera was seized by the prime ministers security division, during the reporting of the tense situation which arose in parallel to the commencement ceremony of the Hambanthota- Sri Lanka – China industrial zone.

Even though the camera was handed over to the production crew this afternoon, the storage device with the recorded footage is yet to be handed over.

A tense situation erupted in the area, hours before the commencement of the inauguration ceremony of the Hambanthota- Sri Lanka – China industrial zone.

The drone was used for recording the scenes from the protest.

However, once the drone landed, a group believed to comprise Security Officers had taken it in to custody without giving a proper explanation for doing so.

We later found out that they were from the Prime Minister’s Security Division, and we brought it to the attention of the Minister and Deputy Minister of Media and UNP General Secretary.

Later DG of the Government Information Department Ranga Kalansooriya stated that steps will be taken to return the Drone.

The drone was later handed over at a renowned Hotel in Hambantota but the data storage is yet to be received.
