It is not often that we receive news that is positive and promising. However, yesterday evening, I received a news alert on my mobile stating the following:
“The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission has instructed Internet Service Providers in Sri Lanka to filter/block porn and obscene web sites.”
The full article can be read from the Official Government News Portal of Sri Lanka, titled: “Govt. Regulatory Body Act Against Porn Websites”
This is, without doubt, a huge achievement for Sri Lanka and we extend our congratulations to the Government of Sri Lanka and the Colombo Chief Magistrate for his directives.
