Colombo District Court has issued an interim injunction order to Keerthi Dunuwila of Colombo Today Youtube Channel and Youtube LLC on 4th January 2022. This order was issued revelavant youtube channel has published a video regarding the Russian Education Centre (REC campus) in Sri lanka. The plaintiff REC Campus has claimed that the video content was damaging the business reputation of their institution. While this injunction order sets a bad precedent, it should be also noted that Colombo Today has been a youtube channel that frequently publishes and promotes intolerance and hatred towards ethnic minorities in Sri Lanka and a usual social media platform for the Buddhist extremist organization Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) that is allegedly responsible for multiple anti-Muslim riots in Sri Lanka. Despite their background, the incident was included in the report as there is a possibility that similar orders or measures could be used by the authorities to repress the incidents of dissent.
