Media Ministry will not launch investigation on sexual harassment in media institutions: Keheliya

Media Minister and Cabinet Spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella told reporters today that his Ministry will not launch an investigation based on social media reports of allegations of sexual harassment in media institutions.

He said that if there is an incident then a complaint must be made to the Police or the Media Ministry.

Rambukwella said that launching an investigation into any media institution without a formal complaint will be seen as interfering in the media.

Last week, Rambukwella stated at the Cabinet press that he was not aware of the allegations made by female journalists on social media of sexual harassment at media institutions.
