The Sunday Leader

When I read that The Sunday Leader ( had ceased print and online operations on Twitter, my first thought was to archive the entire site.

I forgot that nearly ten years ago, ten days after Lasantha Wickrematunge was murdered in January 2009, I had taken the first archive of the site, and for that reason.

Download the archive from 18 January 2009 here.

Download the archive of the website taken on 28 July 2018, here.

This archive contains all the text of the newspaper’s own archive going back to 2002. It also contains almost all of the images / photos published on the entire website. Since the ZIP file contains a myriad of folders, please go to the www . thesundayleader¬†. lk folder and click on index.html to access site contents. Or you can also use Windows, macOS or Linux folder search functionalities baked into the operating system to search for content.

Note: Because of the naming convention of some of the files, I couldn’t create a ZIP file from macOS. However, all the files from the blog are mirrored on the Google Drive folder.
