The Media Centre for National Security (http://www.nationalsecurity.lk at the time of writing) was established in the final years of the war for the specific purpose of disseminating all national security and defence-related information and data to the Media and the public from one place.

MCNS ceased to exist on 1st of November 2013, according to media reports.

The MCNS site was hacked earlier in the year, and was responsible for the censorship of all SMS news alerts in Sri Lanka from 2012. Since 2006, MCNS gagged the production and publication of anything considered to be relevant to “national security and defence”.
