Investigative journalism: a Sri Lankan story

Protecting press freedom

Protecting press freedom

This week Transparency International (TI) representatives from more than 20 Asia and Pacific countries are in Delhi, India, for in-depth discussions and strategising on priority issues facing the region.

On World Press Freedom day, I caught up with Rukshana Nanayakkara, Deputy Executive Director of TI Sri Lanka, to hear about the great work they have been doing training  investigative journalists to expose corruption. You can listen to a recording of our conversation on our website in a special feature that testifies to how journalists around the world courageously speak out about corruption often at great personal risk. 

I will be sharing with you some highlights over the next few days, starting with a report back from an event organised by TI India on the devastating relationship between poverty and corruption.
