Sri Lanka refutes Channel- 4 allegations; ‘Elongated version of same video’
The High Commission of Sri Lanka in London in a statement issued yesterday (30 Nov) categorically denies that the Channel 4 News TV video is authentic.
Last year when Channel 4 News telecast a similar video the Government of Sri Lanka clearly established, by reference to technical considerations, that it was not genuine but fake. The present video is nothing more than an elongated version of the same video.
It is observed that there is a common pattern in these sinister moves. Some sections were replete with photographs of alleged war crimes when Sri Lanka’s application for the extension of GSP+ facility was being considered by the European Commission. A leading British newspaper had received photographs of alleged war crimes when the Sri Lankan External Affairs Minister visited the United Kingdom last October. The suppliers themselves had admitted that they were not in a position to
confirm the authenticity, place or the veracity of the material supplied by them.
The latest move coincides with the visit to the United Kingdom of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
It is no secret that the anti-Sri Lankan separatist lobby which is behind these moves live in the comforts mainly in the West, and have not contributed towards restoration of normalcy and livelihoods of the deprived people affected by the conflict. Instead they continue to resuscitate the separatist ideology.
Defeat of the LTTE has opened up democratic freedoms to the entire country. An eight member Lessons Learn and Reconciliation Commission appointed after the end of the conflict which is tasked to report on the lessons to be learnt from the past events and recommend measures to ensure that there will be no recurrence of such a situation. The Commission has sat many times including in the former conflict zones and made interim recommendations. The support for the extremists who seek resurgence of violence in order to incite hatred is fast diminishing, the Sri Lankan High Commission in London said.

There is no need to create death certificates for dead dogs. It is a shear waste of tax payers money.
Well said Manjula. VP was a mad dog inflicted with rabies. For DC he is not dead but has escaped to the West. Let him delude himself with these thoughts and be happy, unable to bear the sorrow of their loss. I am waiting for the day the Rudra and Nediyavan raise a new LTTE military front to invade SL. Ofcourse, they will not come personally themselves to lead from the front. They are cowards hiding away in imperial West under skirt. They can talk big while hiding safely under the petticoat of the imperial West. All their faces, including DC’s, will be rubbed on their own excrement, given time.
Well said Nicholas
