Hiru TV won the Award Certificate annually conferred by the British Thompson Foundation for the Best Investigative Reporting.

This the first time that an electronic media institute of this country won this award certificate.

It was conferred in London recently.

This Mass Media Excellence Award was conferred for the C.I.A. feature of Hiru TV news telecast in view of the disclosure made with regard to the Vanatha-villuva Green Field Land fraud.

Information with regard to this was collected over a period exceeding six months.

Subsequently it turned out to be information with regard to the biggest land fraud that had taken place in the country .

Similarly Hiru TV CIA also succeeded in bringing the brain behind this, namely, Rohan Saman Rathanayake, before law.

Hiru TV won the award for the best investigative reporting in South Asia in the TV category rising above more than 250 such competitors in investigative reporting.

While the Thompson Foundation has been carrying out training of media personnel for more than five decades, it is considered the first such philanthropic foundation in the world.
