President's Media Unit says necessary steps are being taken to ease the restrictions imposed on Facebook.
 
Through this discussion, the government is working on to create a mechanism to ensure the necessary protection and surveillance and lift the temporary restriction on access to the Facebook site.
 
The restrictions on Facebook would most probably be lifted after that discussion.
 
The President's Media Division also said that President Maithripala Sirisena has highlighted the importance of having a mechanism to regulate the social media.
 
He had said that such a mechanism is required to avoid social media being used to incite racial disharmony and damage personal images.

The government decided to restrict access to social media sites temporarily last week, in order to curtail the misuse of the social media in a manner detrimental to the national harmony.

The President has instructed the relevant authorities to take necessary steps immediately to bring normalcy to the country and ensure such disturbances would not recur and take legal actions against those who are responsible for those illegal activities.
