The Director General of the Government Information Department Nalaka Kaluwewa has informed all media institutions to refrain from showing video footage of sharp weapons including swords, machetes as well as other firearms and weapons discovered during search operations carried out by security forces, subsequent to the Easter Sunday attacks, across the island.

According to his instructions, even though media institutions do have in their possession video footage of these raids the request of the government is to refrain from telecasting these pictures.

The Director General issued these instructions this morning when he met heads of media institutions this morning at the Government Information Department.
