"There Are Rumours About An Internet Blackout To Suppress Public Opinion About Unconstitutional Removal Of PM:" Harsha
2018-Oct-29 | By News Admin

UNP State Minister Dr. Harsha de Silva said there were rumours about the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) planning to shut down 3G and 4G networks to create an internet blackout. 

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) comes directly under the purview of President Maithripala Sirisena. 

De Silva said the move was aimed at suppressing information about the "unconstitutional removal of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe." 

However, the TRC has not made any official statement on the matter so far.
