Sonali Samarasinghe, journalist and the wife of the late Lasantha Wickrematunge, who was the editor of the independent Sunday Leader newspaper, and was murdered on 08/01/2009. Openly critical of the government, he had predicted his own death, writing "I hope my assassination will be seen not as a defeat of freedom but an inspiration for those who survive to step up their efforts."
