Journalists victimised during Mahinda Rajapaksa’s regime are to be compensated, sources at the President’s office said.
Sources said that journalists who were threatened, assaulted and the families of journalists killed will be compensated.
A committee appointed for this purpose has decided to compensate the journalists and has collected information of those who have sought compensation.
Sources said that journalists who were removed from their posts during the Mahinda Rajapaksa regime from state media institutions owing to their political affiliations will be among those compensated.
