Featuring in the film will be a video first aired by Channel 4 News of controversial footage of govt troops executing Tamil prisoners.

The UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christof Heynes, described the footage as “definitive war crimes”.

The footage shown by Channel 4 News TV was rejected by the Sri Lankan Govt which assigned its own experts who examined & dismissed it as false.

The film shows footage captured on mobile phones, both by Tamil civilians under attack & taken by government soldiers as trophies of war.

The film shows some of the terrible crimes carried out by the Tamil Tigers, including the cynical use of Tamil civilians as human shields.

Among scenes shown in the film are extra-judicial executions of LTTE prisoners & the aftermath of targeted shelling of civilian camps.

The film also has footage of dead female Tamil Tiger fighters who appear to have been raped or sexually assaulted, abused & murdered.

Channel 4′s Head of News & Current Affairs Dorothy Byrne, says: “The footage is probably the most horrific the channel has ever shown.

    thanks jey for this information.but question is whether all these initiatives will fetch desired results?latest news is ratko mladic one of the accused in srebrenica massacre has been captured and jailed despite the riots that broke out in belgrade.will international community realise that another war crime has taken place in northern srilanka and it is incumbent on world community to do its duty only time will tell.as a tamil and a human being i look forward to international community to act or else in another ten years we will hear war crime has taken place in some other part of the world.pls act if srilankan government does not accept the report let sanctions be imposed on srilanka.

    Please show massacers commmitted by the British army in their former colonies.Especially the massacre of Wellassa-in the Uva province after the 1818 rebellion.

  4. Sithar says:

    both my wife&me are from the Vanni. We lost so many family people & others known to us. Everyday we used to go to houses in Toronto to families who lost kith &kin & consoled them those days.People also came to our house to convey sympathy

    Those days in April.May, June 2009 was a big period of morning

    We got very sad &angry when Mahinda said no civilians got killed. Big lies.

    I wish this film will expose the truth.That way we will get some relief

  5. Gordon says:

    Callum Mcrae is one of the best directors in Britain now.I’ve seen his work on BBC &ITV &liked them

    He did a film on the Ivory coast civil war for Channel 4 which was a classic documentary

    I can hardly wait to see Callum Mcrae bringing out the horrors of Sri Lankas killing fields on film

    This is anti-Sri Lankan arrogant propaganda by the pro-West.

    The authencity of this CONTROVERSIAL video was challeneged by Siri Hewavitharana the former head of the cisco systems. UN avoided it. Now they premier it in Geneva.
    How undemocratic. Its authoritarianism.

    Such is the audacity of the AI who will run the film it in the side of UN HR sessions.

    So… UN, AI they are all one and same with a hidden agenda to trample the Rajapakshe regime of Sri Lanka.
    WHERE DO WE GET IMPARTIAL HUMAN RIGHTS? THERE IS NO HR ORGANISATION WHO ARE NEUTRAL INCLUDING THE UN…
    IS THIS THE NEW WORLD ORDER ?????????

  9. Balraj Theepan says:

    As usual all printenders here defending SL without thinking their government commited mass genocide and crime against humanity, they will do the same pattern of the lies and hiding theire faces without taking any responsibility for this karma. watch this blog.

    .
    Ane Appuhamy,

    In 1989 when Srilankan Soldiers murdered thousands of Sinhala youths, Mr. Rajapakse went to the same international community in Geneva and complained about Srilanakan government and military.

    Do you remember???

    :-)

  11. NAM says:

    So that you mean I say that you can I mean you know that if I convict for a crime you know I can get away showing that another mate also did the same , you know and showing what he did and I mean I can escape verdict.

    Which centuary are you living now. Wake up and see the outside world and some light instead if living in a basement!!!

  12. Rohan says:

    I have one simple questions. If the LTTE was still fighting, how many innocent civillians would be dead by now. Maybe there were civillians deaths, just like there were civillian death during the second world war, iraq war etc. While I do sympathize with all deaths these deaths were coletrall damage, not deliberate killings. I also want to ask everybody who are screaming for war crime charges, where were the war chrime charges for the past 30 plus years when LTTE were killing innocent civillians…what hypocricy. You can say all these things because you live in a far away land comfortably, not in North & East of SL. Beleive me people in the N&E are happy that LTTE is no more. All LTTE supporters, get over it, LTTE is gone, please work for the betterment of your fellow countrymen in N&E sl.

  13. NAM says:

    You mean to say that by killing the messenger you can kill the truth. UN and AI are just messengers

    ha ha ha… hoooohhhh …. hoooooooh!

    Who are the actors in this video? Which idiot is going to beleive these acts? Haven’t we seen these antics of Tamil Terrorist Diaspora, who carry a tattoo of a toothless tiger near their a*seholes?

    No one is going touch our proud leaders and above all our valiant soldiers… who rescued 350,000 civilians held as a human shield by the Tamil Terrorists.

    No matter what!

    Lowlives of Tamil terrorists don’t worth the dust under our doormats.

    We created ultimate PEACE… through WAR…

    So, Waanga Machaan Wanga… Nee suruka suruka waanga!

  17. Thavaratnam says:

    I do have simple answer that LTTE is terrorist but Government of Sri Lanka is a state not yet baned as terrorist state (Will happen soon?) So the Government should have responsibility to protect own civilians (Sorry GOSL still demanding that Eelam tamil also under the Srilankan umbrella) So they shoud abide all the law and orders.
    We always demand that we should punish LTTE also in the crime, Then the leaders are Nediyavan, Kathirkamathamby Arivalagan, Pathmanathan (KP) , Karunai, Pillaian and etc are the remain so they should be responsbile for the LTTE’s crime.

    I do not know what will happen next, but I am saying to Sinhala state that please follow the Buddha Sindaya not Mahinda sindaya…

    Best Wishes,

    Ratnam.

  18. Victim says:

    There won’t be any solution for victimized Tamil people from the Sinhala terrorists, and war criminals. The only way a head to safeguard the dignity of the Tamil people is to punish the War criminals and stop the ongoing genocide.

    Tamils right should be safeguarded and their territorial integrity should be preserved.Please everybody work together until the dawn.

  19. LKsword says:

    Adey Sinna Sithar,

    For 30 years, Tamil terrorists killed 80,000 of my brothers and sisters in order to safeguard their profitable Mafia business, while singing a song called ‘Tamil struggle’.

    I am also very angry… because truth of the Tamil terrorism is coming out too slow.

    you have admitted that SL has committed war crimes as the result of British massacre in Uva province in 1818. People like you have made world unsafe than real terror.

  23. ellalan says:

    Appuhamy, you have done it in the past many many times, you are capable of doing it again and again.

    No body gave a hoot about war crimes when V Prabhakaran was committing it by bombing, butchering civilians daily basis in all parts of SL..?? Norway was meeting him regulary then, but not a single word about war crimes was uttered. When Mulaithivu camp was overrun by LTTE, the videos found clearely showed how they killed soldiers wounded by firing at the close range. Where was this word ‘war crimes’ then..?? :-)

  27. Thavaratnam says:

    I have seen the Killing filed videos, very rude. Can not sleep after seen the video.

    Then only decided to visit Sri Lanka and find out what happened really.

    Met lot of peoples who were in the last ditch war (Mullivaikal and Puthumattalan areas)

    After hearing their stories even I could not eat food.

    A mother of three kid (who’s husband had died in the shelling at Puthukudiyiruppu); Said they came to camp in May after that her younger son got flu.. and pleaded to the soldiers, Douglas and Karunai group( Those who control the camp) to get medication. They refused and finally she send her son only 4yrs old alone with a Karunai group member (..).. After few days she heard the news that the son no more he past away from hospital. Still I am crying for the mother.

    The story is one of that I am producing here.. I have documented lot (There are lot of young ladies forced to have sex with army, douglas members, Karunai members, even took them to Anuradhapura for sex) . I believe this is the war in world people behave as animal.

    Pirabakaran and his colleague are solely responsible for this, but final moment that at least in the camps government should have behaved with humanity.. but not.

    Dear Mahinda and brothers you guys also have kids, why did you behave like this?
    Pray the god whoever you believe will not happen to sons or daughter what ever you did for innocent Tamils…

    Regards
    Ratnam.

  28. Chinthaka says:

    Funny thing is you waited all these 30+ yrs until VP and the gang is gone to ask for a punishment on LTTE.. Where were you when they were at the height of killing babies to old men/women…???

    How come Rudrakumaran is not in your proposed hit list..

    Obviously, Nediyawanan is no use for you anymore.. He’s like a used condom… More importantly you need those who took part in defeating terrorism to be punished, don’t you..?? Simply the saviours from terrorism to be punished at any cost is your agenda isn’t it?

    We call it desperation… to get what..?? Vengence. Did you ever see us waiting desperately for LTTE to be crushed as we simply needed to live, not to take revenge..?? Do you know the difference between both..??

  29. Nima says:

    We can’t acept any kind of killing. But do not discuss only one side killing. Why do not discuss the people who killed by LTTE?

  30. Ram says:

    Dear LKSword,

    Your laughing shows how ignorant are you. There is no need for anyone to act, these are all authentic videos taken during the war. If you think these are antics you are fooling yourself buddy. Whoever committed war crime may it be the Govt forces or the LTTE have to face the war crimes tribunal and face the international criminal court.

    People are coming up with more and more evidences and one day, the people who committed these heinous crimes against the civilians will be tried and punished. Even smaller crimes compared to the one happened in SL has received international attention and the criminals were punished, there will be a day when the people who were responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 innocent men, women and children will be sent to the gallows.

    Dream on my friend, good for you

    TV footage prints could not have captured all that happended to the people. It could only display a glimpse of what happened to SL Tamils.

    There is evidence to prove that the particular scenes have been videoed in Tamil Nadu. Until the truth is revealed, fools can live in Ealam paradise.

  34. Cicero says:

    The LTTE DID commit terrible atrocities. That is why they are terrorists! That is why they are called such. If we compare what the SL forces did to the LTTE, then are we not saying that they are terrorists too ? The LTTE did not sign any UN protocols, the SL Government did!!

    There is sufficient evidence that GOSL committed war crimes. The GOSL has been using the emergency regulations to control further evidence getting out!!! Even the elected MPs are not free to talk. North & East is under SLA control in every sense. Sooner or later more and more evidence will come out. This is only a tip of the iceberg.

    Balraj Theepan……. Was Balraj the Commander of the LTTE able to defend himself ??
    My answer is NO. You are suddenly taken away……….. I don’t know about your reply???

    Peace has dawned through the war for all citizens of the entire country.
    No more parents pray before their children leave for school not knowing whether they will return or perish to a suicide bomb.
    Tamil in SL only opened their mouth only to eat & yawn.

    Only people who opened their mouth those days was the Northern Clergy who switched their allgiance from Jesus Christ to VELU.
    Hence clergy like S.J.Emmanuel, Satkunanayagam and many Bishops compeletely forgot their mandate. Propaganda work for Jesus Christ.

    It appears the Selfish Clergy and overseas Diasspora are eager to create another situation to decimate the remaining Tamil Youth and Children…….
    Its up to you guys to gloat on Channel 4, Rita.S, pump money to AI, HRW, ICG and to Panel reports. These will take you nowhere whether Rajapakshe is there are not in Sri Lanka.
    If you need to create misery in Sri Lanka, Go Ahead and indulge…….Remember, Commander Balraj with all his brilliance could not save himself.

  39. PP says:

    I am questionning the integrity of these HR defenders.Any international investigation is not acceptable as long as Tamil diaspora is in western countries buying politicians and judges in those countries.

    There will be no reconciliations as long as tamils drop racist demand like homeland.

  40. Palitha says:

    Former US secretary of state Collin Powell came to UN security council with false satellite pictures to fool the world that Saddam has WMD and need to be attacked. US went ahead with their unholy allies and massacred millions of innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan ,and found no WMD. Us did this even without UN approval. Today this same unholy alliance have come out with crocodile tears and showing doctored videos to prove SL army committed war crimes, AI ,HRW, Crisis group are you people def and blind why are you not crying for war crimes committed by your white pigs on these innocent people in Iraq ,Afghanistan and Pakistan.

  41. Manju says:

    Sri Lanka could have and still could trade violence with peace and prosperity by appeasing minority with rights. Unfortunately this chapter in our country’s history is likely to be continued. The government’s only objective is to cheat big time and who better would come to their aid other than China and Russia. There is overwhelming mass support in our country for violence over peace. If ever a presidential candidate talks about peace even for a minute at an election campaign, he or she would not get the votes.Playing hard ball wins votes.

    I am also interested to see the US Seals Killing un-armed Bin Laden Video. Which is a fact!! where as the video the Channel 4 has even not yet being verified which side is commiting the crime..we all know LTTE can easily get dressed up in SL army uniforms and speak Sinhala and get someone to Video it for them to send accross to Pro- LTTE media like Channel 4. This is not proven, but may very well be the case..

  45. S.C. Pasqual says:

  46. Chinthaka says:

    Before talking about reaction talk first about the action that led reaction… Things are not possible to take place in the way it is written down when you defend against a lawless, murderous outfit that had no respect for anything under the sun.

    A terrorist can become a civilian under so-called law once he/she throws away the weapon and gets rid of the militory clothings, but countering terrorism always has to deal with terrorist methods too. You will better know those if you contact Barack Obama, the commander for US forces or its ally in middle east, Israel.

  47. Harsha says:

    The UN, certain “Western Governments” and the pro-LTTE Tamil Diaspora are all saying, pretty much the same thing these days. They just cannot accept the fact that Sri Lanka, comprising of all ethnic groups, have prevailed over racist separatism. But this is a simplified way of looking at things.

    The United Nations is primarily a tool to police developing countries—to keep them in line with the “West”. It seems that the morally righteous “West” is trying to make the rest of the world tag its line. There is no evidence to prove otherwise. The UN has a track record of selective interventions. The reasons for not intervening, for example in Rwanda, were because President Bill Clinton thought it inappropriate. So we know very clearly who is behind the current UN ‘actions’ against Sri Lanka.

    An intervention by the UN in Rwanda was ‘inappropriate’ in 1994 because the UN, backed by the USA were humiliated in Somalia just before the Rwandan genocide started. The use of the word genocide was forbidden in the description of the violence in Rwanda. What in the world did the failed Somali excursion of the USA have to do with those poor Tutsis? Why were they punished by the same International Community who now screams genocide at the Sri Lankan state for wiping out the LTTE? The question on every Sri Lankan’s mind today is why did they all jump in to save the LTTE when they themselves opposed it and when the entire country of Sri Lanka and the rest of the free thinking world (even Communist China) wanted otherwise? What does China’s naval domination in south Asia, Iran’s generosity and Libya’s friendliness to Lanka have to do with Sri Lanka’s right to decide its national security?

    The same groups running the UN from the “Western world” today allow a section of the Tamil Diaspora looters the free and undisturbed use of the word “Genocide” to describe the massacre of terrorists in Sri Lanka. How are these two things similar? Where were the Milibands, Kouchners and Clintons when Tutsi’s were massacred in the thousands for 3 months until the Interahamwe gave up on its own, tired? In fact, UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros Ghali refused to even visit Rwanda after the genocide. He was taken, almost by force to a Rwandan church to witness the horror with his own eyes. All he did even then was lie to the survivors that the UN wanted to help those dead Tutsis. Perhaps a Tutsi should have held Navi Pillai’s current position. Then that job would have made some sense.

    How many Tigers killed? None? hahahaha

  52. Native Tamil says:

    UN concern is about mass killing of over 40,000 civilians through so called ‘Humanitarian operation’ with ‘Zero casuality’ in the end of civil war. Any country Government and securityforces should law abiding and most responsible for civilian safety. They cannot hide the truth and conduct the war without witness in this mass scale of killing.

    Even wrong after UN expert and various evidence proved this clearely ,still SL ‘rulling class’ and some pupets still refuse this and pretending as ‘nothing happened’. Blaming others,diverting attention from the subject only prove ‘how you lie again and again’

    Accountability and taken responsibility is big issue in SL.Therefore crimes and violants repeated again and again. Most dangerous thing is continuously using security forces and police as a tool for this and goverment people support and hide this violents. No matter sinhalese or Tamils we should not allow this continue in future.

    Same attitude in political solution , thousands of political prisoners matter and reconcilation of war effected NE are prevent to return normalacy even after 2 years of
    the 26 years long civil war.

    U perverts what’s so interesting about the horrors of war? A war is a killing field where ever it happened.

    In this last phase of the war the unique difference was that LTTE held 300,000 hostages. This must be a world record.

    Yet the world is gullible to the LTTE rumps propaganda. They had a thriving business while the hostages were sacrificing their lives.

    How could any one listen to those hypocrites in the west?

    Go on you hardcore gullible morons have your posh parties…. satisfy your egos. The victims of war will curse you & it will be carried for generations to come.

    No peace yet for tamils and the muslims. Now tamil people only open their mouth to eat and yawn, some even cannot find food to eat. The war ended 2 years ago, tamil people’s livelihoods are worse that LTTE time. The govt is further militarizing North and East, what for? Rather than writing crap in this forum, ask your sinhalese government to give respect and devolve power to the tamils. They are continuing to make the same mistake which gave birth to the rise of militancy. If they dont correct their course, country will face another monster worse than the tigers.

So how can he say that that no tamil civilians were killed in the war? His is only fooling his own sinhala people to stay in power, the gullible poor believe all the lies this government is saying but they little know that their graves are being dug and not only theirs but for their future generation as well. So by this alone we could see that there is no justice not only for tamils but for the sinhala people as well and all sri lankans!!!!!!!

    Dear Harsha,

    There is no east and west for humanity, For myself have witnessed the horrible. Weather they are Tamils or Sinhalese/ Tigers or Lion no issue. We should give the message the violation will not happen again.

    I know what extent we can go. The international community how will act. We will put them pressure to bring who ever responsible should be stand in-front of justice.

    You are stating international diaspora not accepting/agreeing that the Sri Lanka compromising with Tamils in ground. I am not the Mr.Selva/Mr.Sampanthan to believe your jokes.

    Those who have abused the situation are still holding the power, Government of Srilanka still promoting the ex paramilitary/ Tamil gangsters to remain in Power (North and east). Is that you are mentioning compromising?

    Or Whenever India/Western exert the pressure SL government call for meeting with TNA, Are you mentioning this is the compromising?

    Sorry Harsha, Time is moving fast, Sri Lanka should act fast to get bring the Tamils also in the same umbrella, unless otherwise we all do not have future in the ground…

    Best wishes,

    Ratnam.

Any humanbeans will react same way to flee if army use shelling on civilians as tool even in Safe zone? Pls Do not try to escape u rescued and they human sheled. it is civilians they decide how can they save more lives. But you have already killed more than 40,000 eventhough Un & IC warned before this Genocidal war without witness. Now you cannot escape from justice like what you did in the past locally. Remember 58? 77? 81 Tamil Arachi? Jaffna library?83 July? Kumuthini boat ? Kokkaticholai? Binthunuveva? Trinco murders?…Mullivaykkaal. It is more than state terrorism which is purely Genocide.

    Not only you there are many Sinhalese whose kids were killed by LTTE thugs – in front of their parents by hacking them with long knives and by smashing them on ground – Hope you remember Menik farm and Mangalapura killing and many subsequent similar kiliings by LTTE goons – just because they happen to live in LTTE’s demarcated EElam boundries – The living relatives and sisters and brothers who witnessed these kiliings — bare huge anger towards LTTE goons even to day – can anybody identify those LTTE goons who carried out these inhuman acts and bring justice to the victims – HR activists pls answer — And what all these bias media and HR activist doing now is pouring fuel on these burning anger and making the matters worser for Tamils and Sinhalese both – when you count 17 /43 – remember there are others who can count many more – so stop counting – try understand the reality — find out ways of re-building communal harmony — Revenge taking finally will end up with another communal violance – this post war era should be a period of bringing in together everybody who bears enormus anger either towards tamil or sinhalese and make them understand ever tamil is not a LTTE or every sinhalese not an extremist – Pls think deep – those who have done brutal killings will met their destiny accordingly – we humans do not need to travel on revenge mongering paths – many who shouts on HR violation – Pls look into your conscience and see whether you really are genuine – why not you see all around you – every rich country violate human rights – why not taking them to ICC -

  78. Ben Hurling says:

    All Sri Lankans must rise to this challenge. Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, Burghers and Malays.

    Right now the agenda is set by a few unaccountable and unrepresentative organisations based in the West. Such as AI and Channle 4.

    Ealam War IV was bloody and brutal. Just like Dresden Bombings, Battle for Berlin or D-Day landings in France during 2nd World War. After 30 years, Sri Lanka had no choice but neutralize the LTTE. Ealam War IV was absolutely a “Just War”. Unlike the Bush-Blair Iraq War, which claimed half a million Iraqi lives while loooking for those infamous WMDs’.

    Sri Lanka does not need to apologize to the West.

    However, we must apologize to innocent civilian victims with all our hearts. We can never bring back loved ones lost. But, we can build a rightous society from now on. We know many perished despite the zero casualty policy. Lets be honest about it. This was a bloody war with “The LTTE”. Most victims will have some understanding for our case.

    We don’t need Channel 4 or AI to point these things out. Sri Lanka is a humane society. We lost it along the way, somewhere. Lets claim it back.

    In the meantime, Sri Lankans please start working on the documentary “Killing fields of Iraq” right away. Sri Lanka can strip the so called “British Army” naked with out much trouble.

    chinthaka

    Thousands of tamils died fr opposing LTTE including kadirgamar who was mainly instrumental in getting them proscribed.Many tamils in other armed groups were also wiped out. Even karuna’s easterners were hunted down relentlessly by them. What more do you expect from ordinary tamil people and now you have made them the scapegoat for the LTTE while your own governments went on dragging the war for 25 years. In all fairness to Athulathmudali and denzil kobbekaduwa,they should have finished it in 1987 vadamarachi operation instead of 2009 mullavaikal operation if not for rajiv’s airdrop for which he paid for with his life.So stop blaming tamils who have at least opposed and got killed by LTTE,while the brave sinhalese locked themselves behind closed doors during the JVP insurgency.Can you tell me how many sinhalese died for opposing the JVP?In colombo they would not come to work even. One day only myself and a handfull of staff were in the factory because of JVP threats.They brought me a note which was dropped by telling to close or be killed.All went off except me. Next day also i went to work and i was the only one.If i had been working in a LTTE area i would have been killed.The JVP i think were better than the LTTE,otherwise i won’t be here now typing.Ultimately ordinary civilians can’t deal with these ruthless armed groups so stop blaming them.Blame the GOSL and the GOI,the principal culprits for creating and dragging this war.

    I completely agree with the following comment made by Rohan. “I have one simple questions. If the LTTE was still fighting, how many innocent civilians would be dead by now.” I fully agree with Rohan. I have seen a number crimes committed by LTTE. I have seen many lamb post killing committed by LTTE in Jaffna in the name of freedom fighting. . I have also seen the burning of alive TELO cadres in Thirunelvelley in Jaffna by LTTE (majority of them were from Batticola). As a Tamil I also feel sorry to see the fellow Tamils (LTTE) being executed by armed forces. However, I think there is no alternative other than to eliminate hardcore elements in LTTE. It should be noted that armed forces did not execute Col Paduman.My cousin was an Lt Col in LTTE. I know how innocent youths were brain washed.

  87. I am a Sri lanka Tamil. I openly say that what Ch4 tries to show is totally a false propaganda organised by AI & LTTE lobby in the USA & UK. I call all Tamils in the wolrd to united to defeat LTTE Organizations avtive & funds collecting in the USA & Other countries. We are living very peacefully in Sri Lanka, we move everywhere very freely. I personaly request to all LTTE supporters who wants to stay continously in USA & other foreign countries without comming here, pl allow us to stay peacefully in SL. AI & all of you are crying not for us, u all are trying to strenth the reasons for u all to stay in those countries by bringing false proganda in the name of innocent tamils. This all happened because you people contributed for terror organization in the past.At least open yr eyes, pl bring that money to the North & east of SL, help our people build houses from the money that u all are wasting for these false propaganda. How much bribes that you must have given to AI for allow them to show this false propaganda show? Pl spent those to poor people in rehabiltation camps in SL. There is a limit that a govt can do. Again, LTTE & it’s funders are the responsible people for all these crimes.

  88. Renu it seems to be now you are very clever with yr numbers not like those days, where u couldnot add 3+2. Renu can you put the names of all those have dead including few telephone numbers of their next of kin, to enable us call those & findout the truth.

    The perpetrators of war crimes slipped the might of

    is this “faked” video – not available hitherto in modern history of Warfare. The outcome is therefore obvious for
    the sake of Humanity. We cannot expect China India Russia etc to raise voice of Democracy, which they are not known to do so, and if other
    Western countries do so, specially in the situation GOSL
    has placed itself, it is unfair to say that LTTE propaganda machinery is at work? The plight of the
    innocent victims should be foremost catered to. The UN
    is the remaining recourse to legitimately address it.

  101. Metta Mudita Karuna Upekkha says:

    Yes Rabok et al, you are absolutely spot on about the atrocities committed by the LTTE and the fact nobody cares to demand action against them. I invite you to join me in demanding that the remaining LTTE high rankers with the government and in custody including KP and Karuna (who slaughtered more than six hundred Policemen in 1990) as well as the LTTE operatives in the Western world should be held responsible for supporting, raising funds, threatening people, abducting and killing people (Tamil, Muslim and Sinhalese) and indeed hacking to death many a person. I want to see them in The Hague standing trial.

    On the same token, if the Sri Lankan forces have committed war crimes (if this is accepted to be a genuine footage) as a person respecting fellow human beings and peace and harmony in Sri Lanka and elsewhere I don’t think you will not want “severe action taken against those who were in control of the Sri Lankan forces”. Sorry to say this puthaa……if the footage is anything to go by, GOSL will be in serious trouble, and rightly so. I want to see these fellows in The Hague too.

    Thanks for reminding us Sri Lankans about communal harmony (and the subtle threat/intimidation that there will be more racial tension) etc. Don’t you think it is too little too late to talk about harmony and riots? Sri Lankans (Tamils and Sinhalese alike) have been through enough and more racial tensions and riots and deaths and this intimidation will not stop them from doing what they want to do. This footage is not about adding fuel to the fire……this is probably a means for CLOSURE!!

    The government had more than two years since defeating LTTE to start a meaningful reconciliation process which would have led to “closure” of grievances and feelings of those who suffered during the war, so that people can put the past behind them and move on as a nation. But the government was too busy doing nothing. I only hope the perpetrators on both sides will get what they deserve.

    Rabok,from what you have written and the undertone of nervousness, I have one question: “Were you in any way connected to these killings?”

    MMKU, You summed up well. Two years gone what the GOSL had done to Integrate the community? Nothing. Causing misseries to the innocent tamils. Ex tamil terroists who are the puppets of GOSL running meyham. Try and think outside the box.How many communal violences Sri Lanka had since the Independance? Did the GOSL learned any lesson? The birth of LTTE was due to GOSL over the years. Now that the LTTE no more. If the reconcilliation and harmony between the communities are not resolved, believe me there will be other VP’s will be born to take up the Bloody arm struggle. We may not live to see this happening and on the other hand we should not be selfish and worry about what is good for oneself at present. We should not let the terrorists seeds to be sown for the harvesting later years.
    LTTE was terrorists and so the GOSL otherwise they would have let the Independant observers to visit Vanni and Mullivaikaal. Everyone should be brought to justice. Appuhami et al, Ratko Mladic was on the run for killings of 8000 men women and Children. If the Channel 4′s report is genuine (I believe the documentry is), if there is god justice must be meted out to those who were behind the killing of over 40,000 innocent men women and Children.

    Personally, I think the videos showing the killings by the army are real. i also think the LTTE killed people trying to escape. Both sides are at fault.

    Why are we all so scared of the truth? none of us in the forum have committed crimes. Those that did, need to face the aftermath.

    To fix a problem, the first step is to admit that there is one in the first place. If we pretend like there WAS no anti tamil sentiment in the military/gov or the LTTE did nothing wrong, we shall forever be on square one.

In 2009 when LTTE was cornered because they ran out of ammunition (lack of supply & Karuna’s betrayal) the Army not only tortured and killed them but also tortured and killed 40,000 unarmed civilians. This basically shows the nature of humanity in their hearts. We Tamils are waiting for the UN to intervene.

    ooophs! genocide ! self inflicted I would say.
    Please read the link below..for further details.

    http://print.dailymirror.lk/opinion1/45715.html

    Dr Charles Tannoch further said, “Sri Lanka has finally achieved peace by defeating a ruthless terrorist organization as the LTTE, which had rejected all peace bids made by the govt. The word genocide is being mentioned by some, even without knowledge of its meaning.” He questioned the Socialists and Greens, asking, “how anyone could accuse the Sri Lanka Army for genocide, of crimes against humanity, when the same army rescued more than 300,000 Tamil civilians from the LTTE, and have now helped re-settle most of them.”

    However, some of those within the European parliament – influenced by the LTTE diaspora, have still not given up maligning Sri Lanka. This is a damning indictment on the intellectual capacity and integrity of not only Ban ki Moon, but also his so-called expert panel, Darusman, Sooka and Ratner. They are no experts than the man in the moon. They have been picked up by Ban from the dustbin, as it were.

    Sri Lanka is being condemned by the western powers and their corrupt stooges in the UN, regarding human rights violations.

    A mock panel was appointed by Ban Ki-moon WITHOUT the SANCTION of (a) the General Assembly, (b) the Security Council or, (c) the Human Rights Council. This was a unilateral decision of Ban, in consequence of being PRESSURISED by some WESTERN POWERS who were attracted by the FILTHY LUCRE offered BY THE LTTE DIASPORA. For such people, human rights is only a façade.

    They blindly go on the basis that “friendship with the West can be revoltingly rewarding while enmity could be revealingly reviling.”

    Excesses are an accepted reality in war, but on the contrary, the humanitarian exercise by the Sri Lanka Forces to save 300,000 Tamil civilians from the grip of the LTTE (from the jaws of death), itself proves their bona fides. They were a highly principal force, with no intention (mens real), to inflict harm on unarmed civilians…….

  133. TRN says:

    No need to discuss the brutal past its time to forgive forget & get on with the lives. Helping & reaching out to each other. Wasting time, energy & emotions to the past brutalities will not bring justice.

  140. Barath says:

    TRN, it’s understandable where you are coming from and what you are trying to say but you must understand forgiving is easy but forgeting is hard. What’s even harder is living with questions without answers!! Many do not still know if the loved ones are alive or dead. What happened to them? We need answer, we need an internationally monitored tribunal. Let the truth come out, we need answers. Let the justice decide what to do with criminals. Most of LTTE are wiped out but we still see Karuna, Pillayan & KP living in GOVSL’s custody. Put them on trial and put the government sponsored criminals on trials. We, Tamils & Sinhalas, want answers and justice. I am not sure if you understand the pain, but i am darn sure you can’t wake up someone who is pretending to be sleeping.

    LTTE and their masters created some bogus imaginations about LTTE. UNP secretly and opnly supported LTTE because RACISM is the tool invented by UNP and Tamil politicians to hold the power.

    LTTE ranover many military installation when UNP was in power but they did not when Chandrika was elected.

    Even Vai Gopalasamy cried that “No one can touch even the shadow of Prabhakaran”. This kind of media frenzies made the LTTE as “invincible”. But the reality was different.

    When Gotabhaya Rajapaksha who was a Colonal in the Army took the defence, the story changed. LTTE was running from Mavilaaru to Mullivaykkaal with out stopping. They were unable to run beyond Mullivaykkal because of the sea!

    LTTE arrested thousands of Tamils and killed them when they retreat. During those “escape”, they shot videos. Channel 4 never reveal the source of the videos or the names of the victims. But some Tamils now identify the victims in those videos. So, Channel4 will get a nosecut soon!

Warcrime & Genocide not Diaspora word read the Geniva convention clearly for definition. Don’t coverup for your sinhala state terrorist.

    There is 100 pages of News and reports (including UN) about your crimes and cover by Gosl which I cant copy without wasting Dbsj valuable space. But one thing you didn’t see in the srilankan mirror is about how Niraj Deva Singalese MEP influence this all propaganda against real demand of justice for voiceless victim families by 99% of the European parliament . Didnt you know GOSL paid for some western Mps holiday,hotel and girls including propaganda companies? whose money this?

    In which world war; army said to move civilians into NFZ and repetedly shelled on them day and night.Where did you read they killed over 40,000 civilians in this way Mr.TRN?

    Even Hitler and Windsont churchil ordered their troops do not bomb some places including libraries.But your Sril Mathew,Gamini Thisanayaka,Sinhala Kundas and police burnt Famous jaffna library even begining of the 30years War.

    Sarath ponseka alredy mention about Gotha talent in ‘Geniune WAR’ and How he ordered to kill non-combatants. Around 200,000 army fighting with around 20,000 rebel fighters achived this after 3 years of hevy loss.This time army had been fired from behind if they withdrawn, they were no way to go and motivated by Gotha to kill as much as Wanni people and rape. They used this as a tool to win the war and recordard this ‘Joy killing’ as a trophy in the mobile. This is the very true version of the picture, many others not yet come out to the world.

    Hello M. Sivanathan,

    Not everyone was born yesterday. Sri Lanka govt. ever since the British gave keys to Don Stephen has been guising several ways to uproot, change demographics of island and send Tamils packing. From 1948 disfranchisement, pogroms, enforced disappearances, dragging political solutions and driving Tamil militancy to fight it with brutal draconian laws to Vanni massacre to continuing militarisation in 2011, all show the ethnic cleaning Sri lankan state’s true face.

    Please take your LTTE terrorism excuse and stop ‘kidding’ all the time.

  165. Santha Akka says:

    Sorry Link for the UN report after that period (Part 3)

    International Human right groups or UN also research other horible violents took place in Srilanka since 1958 both side and submit another detail report to world to know who were really behind this and
    what was the real motive Terrorism or ongoing Genocide?

  166. 3D says:

    To begin with, there is no such word as “ nosecut “ in the English language. Stop inventing new words.

    Channel 4 has screened the story on the margins of the UN Human Rights Council meeting much to the chagrin of the accused parties namely GOSL and LTTE. C 4 has in effect thumbed its nose at the perpetrators of the alleged crimes. GOSL and LTTE are at the wrong end of the stick. C 4 is the messenger like any other media organization engaged in the publication of news. Contrary to your wishful thinking, the devastating evidence presented by C 4 has the victor and the vanquished nursing a bloody nose. C 4 has its nose intact.

    Reportedly, a Sri Lankan delegation viewed the screening along with the ambassadors of other countries. Whether the SL dignitaries held their heads high or hung their heads in shame at the end of the screening is not yet clear. According to reports a state of “ enraged denial “ has been declared in conformity with the standard operating procedure. Given the rage elicited by the visuals, it would be fair to assume the SL delegation had an embarrassing ordeal.

  168. M.Sivananthan says:

    But all the “atrocities” were done by UNP with the silence approval of the Tamil politicians like GG Ponnampalam and S J V Selavanayakam. That is why they joined the same UNP in 1965 and formed a “NATIONAL GOVERNMENT”. Did the Tamil politicians changed anything during their honeymoon with UNP?

    Later LTTE too joined with the same UNP in fighting against INDIA which was the only nation voiced or concerned about the Tamils of Sri lanka!

    When ever SLFP come to power Tamil Grievences appear on the political horizon! How?

    Dear Barath,

    I would call the above as personal insults.

    Are u from Sri Lanka or India?

    Do you know how many mothers & fathers were suffering since 1970s because of the communal violence & insurgencies that took place in this tiny island?

    Do you think International tribunals bring justice to victims of conflict? when they never take actions to prevent them?

    how gullible you are to rely on these hypocrites the IC. Go on waste your time. We here in SL will do whatever we can to bring about healing to the victims.

    One thing is for sure GOSL will not bring the army in to disrepute. Did India have an inquiry to IPKF & its atrocities?

    Sri lankans have suffered enough they need to get on with their lives.

    Yes of course the GOSL should put out the list of people in custody. That can be done if there is a political will. I’m not sure how the outsiders can change the political will of a popular regime in Sri Lanka?

    Please understand one thing, in Sri Lanka what ever the govt in power, they will not hesitate to crush any anti govt protests or movement. I am not justifying these actions but these are facts we got to live with in this nation. to be honest I have never seen democracy in Sri Lanka during my life time.

    look at the recent FTZ workers protest…

  171. TRN says:

    hmmm anger/// so you have put on the hat TTD.

  172. TRN says:

    I did read about Niraj Deva. I don’t think he is sinhalese but Sri Lankan origin of course. Yes also I have read that GOSL have hired PR companies.

    However GOSL paid for some western Mps holiday,hotel and girls , will account to accusing EU MPs of taking bribes.

  173. TRN says:

    In which world war 300,000 civilians were held hostage akka?

  174. TRN says:

    daily mirror is quoting an EU MPs speach delivered in May 2011. Its is not from a ‘chinthanaya’ source.

    I am not supporting genocide but trying to tell TTD are misusing this word.

  175. TRN says:

    where are you living?… are your source of information from news sites only?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocide_definitions

    The above link gives several definitions to genocide. However where you people can not hold ground is that LTTE was an armed proscribed terrorists group. The civilians were collateral damage in a war.

    Therefore GOSL have grounds to stand on saying they had the right to bring normalcy by eradicating LTTE. Then also civilians were held hostage by the LTTE & also civilians were killed & …. the rest is known.

    I do agree that victory celebrations & presidents ‘zero casualty’ claims do hurt the feelings of tamils.

    I hope one day this will change but war crimes charges … any ones good guess.

  176. TRN says:

    However the living victims of the war are been looked after by the GOSL, By Sri Lnakan tax payers money now. You spend your money to take GOSL to International war tribunal.

    Justice will be done in the end. Go ahead with your plans pal good luck.

    Driven by conscience these soldiers are willing to testify that the videos are genuine.

    I am somewhat perturbed by the facts and to understand the honesty and humanity of those soldiers and those who advocate here in support of those cruel war criminals.

    Is it because as a nation we used for mass killings of these kind? 1971, 1988-89 and 2009.

    Which group of freedom fighters would kill their own kind?

    The best is yet to come… just be ready. It will be another surprise for the hyenas in the west.

  204. shankar says:

    M.sivananthan

    The onus is on the government to disprove the 40000 figure and also to prove it did not include LTTE.usually the onus is on the defence to prove the figures but in this case they can’t because the government blacked out all news coverage during the war. So it shifted responsibility to itself to nonvalidate the victims figures. So in future without hollering how did you get 40000,just tell your pals in the government to give you advice as to how you can give some proof that it could not be 40000 and the real figure is zero as the govt claims.

    Also tell your pals to prove that if there was indeed some killed they were all LTTE and not civilians.

    Don’t go on wasting time asking others to prove this. Just concentrate on disproving it.

  205. LK doctor says:

    Even Thondaman would say that the authorities will now see that there are some powerful persons in the land who want to disrupt their ways.

    Don’t say that your govt was blemishless and all the LTTE was only wrong. Your govt is a state terrorist while the LTTE is a terrorist.

  207. M.Sivananthan says:

    Then how did this 40,000 comeup? For your enjoyment make it as 400,000.

  208. M.Sivananthan says:

    Tamil politicians are not “innocents” to be manupilated but they always cooperate with UNP to kill few Tamils in order to survive politically!

  209. M.Sivananthan says:

    You are right. The Tamil diaspora spend millions of dollars for a false propaganda but never help the poor people in North and East! Even the fools in USA were paying 100,000 dollars for Bruce feins for propaganda. But former LTTE members are now killing themselves in frustration. The Tamil society now treat them as UNTOUCHABLES!

  214. shingala says:

    King Duttugamunu reborn in Sri Lanka as Prabakaran. He saw the immediate danger posed by India and other Tamil groups who were with India. First he eliminated other tamil groups and then later by killing Indian IPKF and Rajiv Gandhi, he single handily eliminated all the support for Tamils. When IPKF was in Sri Lanka, Tamils had Tamil Eelam while Shingala killing each other in the name of JVP. But Prabakaran eliminated all this and given the North and East to Shingalese. We Shingalese should build a monument for Prabakaran for his great service to our people. If Prabakaran wasn’t there, India would have created a Eelam for Tamils and our country would be divided by now. We Shingala nation wouldn’t have existed. Lets not waste our time fight about this so called “war crimes”, lets eliminate the rest of the Tamils in our country before India again step in here and create Tamil land for Tamils!

  215. SAMI says:

    Study the history of Sinhala opression against Tamils since “independence” , you will understand this my son!

  216. shankar says:

    I said that usually the onus is on the defence to prove the figures,whereas it should be the prosecution, not defence.

  217. shankar says:

    You don’t or don’t want to get the point.Disprove the 40000.

    As for how the 40000 originated i don’t know. Probably with eyewitness accounts, satelite images, numbers of civilians before and after carnage etc. Also may have got much circumstantial evidence also which is adequate to convict legally. A picturewill emerge to the investigators of what happenned when they look at the totality of the evidence before them,even though they were hampered by the GOSL stopping them from coming to srilanka to conduct investigations.

    why stop them if you have nothing to hide ans are claiming zero casualties.

    So here we have it in a nutshell one side saying 40000 and the other saying zero.

    So start proving that it is zero mate, without asking the other side which has been obstructed all along by the defence to prove 40000.

    Remember conviction can be on 40000 or 4000,it does not matter. The 2 yugoslavian nutters are definitely going to be convicted on the 8000 massacred in sebrenika,which is considered a big massacre,though they must have killed much more during the war.

    We are talking of 5 times more here,so it is not going to go away buddy,though you and the GOSL can go on hollering away about the numbers and include the LTTE.

  218. Tamilan says:

    If you don’t know “how far it is true” bottom line is IT IS NOT TRUE!!

    No evidence??Sorry nobody believes you!!

  219. TRN says:

    OK to all the pundits of Ch 4 video.

    Can every one please understand that experts have said this is authentic. Although GOSL deny this.

    If it is authentic, then some one was killed by some one. We can go on pointing fingers and satisfy the egos.

    How can any one have an inquiry unless a witness who produced the video comes forward & name the perpetrators?

    One thing is for sure there is some one who held the video camera. That person has to come forward as the witness. Then there will be a case.

  220. TRN says:

    U can call the IDP camps as hostages. However the GOSL had 2 reasons to hold them.

    1. Security reasons to screen the LTTE
    2. clearing the mines

    however I agree they could’ve been released with in 6 months. I am unable to give you reasons for the prolonging the hold in camps. I am not a political ally.

    WHY

    BECAUSE THEY ARE SINHALEES.

    If any thing happened to TAMILS
    It is human tragedy.

    These buddhists monks were not in the ARMY or no any link against tamils. Most of them are youngers.

  222. TRN says:

    Ho !! poor TTD !!

    Only now You cry out for these poor victims. What did u do when they were for decades under LTTE guns ,when force proscription was going on?

    Did you raise your voice against the LTTE to release the hostages during 2008-9? Wasn’t your agenda different from today then?

  223. TRN says:

    Try and prove it at ICC TUn good luck !!

    You can shout but you can’t prove genocide.

    Ohi TRN,

    Don’t behave like a little kid.

    The soldiers who passed the videos are also ready to testify if an internationally observed investigation mechanism is in place. So that they and their family will be safe.

    Fonseka’s experience is a warning to them, ‘not to come out’, thanks to GOTA.

    And even a child will understand why Gota and his brothers don’t want any probe.

    But they are dreaming which will not last long.

  227. M.Sivananthan says:

    PLOT members believe the blind folded person was FAROOK of PLOT. How can I certify that? Dont believe me but ask the PLOT people and they will answer!

    I am here with my name. But you are hiding!

  229. TRN says:

    during a war this can take place i am not denying that. However what’s happening now is the LTTE propaganda machine at work. Many excess in the claims.

    If GOSL had committed war crimes, yes one day they will have to accept it and be accountable.

    But genocide is a word that is been misused by the TTD to justify their ‘eelam’.

  230. TRN says:

    sorry if I offend you. I would say we have already achieved the once perceived as unachievable. ‘defeating the LTTE’

  231. TRN says:

    so then there won;t be an inquiry !

  232. shankar says:

    That man cannot be recognised from behind. Anyway the LTTE are not idiots to masquerade as srilankan army and shoot a guy who could be identified as farook. You must be thinking that the people on this blog have your low levels of intelligence. That is why i told you another blog might be suitable for you where you get a lot of retards making stupid comments.

    …. By Sri Lankan current regime!

    But the world will not wait for long and ICC will be ask to look into it soonar than later.

    If the majority of the Sri Lankans support the current regime, as in the case of Sudan, then the Tamils will have a say on their fate.

    By then Sinhala singio (lions) has to sit and lick theirs wounds.

    yes. we settle down Sinhalese in the Nort & East in Crown Land! A change in Demography in the Nort & East is what we are aiming for. When the demography in those areas change to reflect the rest of the country, you can have your 13th ammendment or even the the 13+ as promiced by MR in 2009. Just have some patience please.

  235. Roaring Roy says:

    Dear Sitar,

    I’m so sad to hear about your lost family members and friends. As we well know that we can’t bring them back to life, just like my Sinhalese brothers and sisters that we lost due to LTTE astrosities. We have to look foarward and be considerate of the living Tamils in SL. The present aggresive attitude of the Tamils living out side of SL, will not benefit the living Tamils in SL.

    This attitude will only reinforce the Sinahala-Hardliners and the Tamils IN SL will be the loosers.

    So a moderate and pragmatic attitude from the Tamils is called for.

    Peace to all!

    Roy

    Ram,

    I do not like videos, nor calendars.
    But I like pics, like these with the old brigade:

    “The picture shows some members of the Thamil Eelam Grandma Brigade are in a training stint. They will soon be deployed in manning the LTTE FDLs and subsequently in the offensive operations against the SL army”

    TRN

    Not necessary. The video is proof enough. NO need of the person taking it. look at what happenned to raj rajaratnam. His tapped telephone calls were played over and over again to the jury. No need to bring the person who tapped the calls.The jury are only interested in the calls itself.

    It is plain as a pikestaff that the soldiers are srilankan.

    IT is worry for the government how this video shot by srilankan soldiers got into the hands of the international community.Looks like there is a trojan horse within.Money would have been given obviuosly,but it shows that there are untrustworthy elements in the army.

  238. modawansa says:

    We call it ‘conscience’, ‘humanity’ and ‘honest integrity’ of those heroic soldiers who took up the arms to safeguards all the children of mother Lanka.

    At the end they are the one who will save the image of our motherland and not the corrupt, blood thirsty criminal rapiests who also took up the arms to kill their co citizens.

  239. NAM says:

    Hay dude,

    We can buy politician in the west but not Judges, That can only happen in Srilanka and may be in India on rare occasions.

    Quote : I am questioning the integrity of these HR defenders

    Again don’t kill the messengers. The message is very loud and clear and you need to address the message and not messenger.

  240. M.Sivananthan says:

    Those who know FAROOK will identify him from back or front! Further LTTE used SL army uniforms in many occasions before their Mullivaykkal fiasco!

    Your level of inteligence is amazing because you cannot survive with wars of intelligence. This is not a Tamil Cinema to fool the people.

  241. M.Sivananthan says:

    LTTE burnt TELO Tamils alive at Thirunelvely Junction. I saw that massacre. That is why I support Mahinda because he destroyed the worst Tamil LTTE!

  242. Rattapakse says:

    Asoka, Ane educated Matchan,

    An abuse in an Iraqi detention of POW by some members of the US forces were videoed and those who took it released it to the media.

    The US government did not say it as fake but conducted an inquiry and the culprits punished.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/04/27/60II/main614063.shtml

    In our case it was indeed the videos were shot and released by some soldiers who were driven by their conscience, honest integrity and above all humanity. The government in return says it fake.

    And people like you compare apple with oranges. What USA did and doing abroad is to safeguard their citizens and what our regime did was to kill the country’s citizens in thousands and trying to safeguard it self.

    Which is correct my friend!!!

    Let us learn some honesty shown by those soldiers who could not stand by the atrocities committed by their few colleagues against their fellow citizens.

    At least we should not insult those true sons of mother Lanka!

  243. Bandarawanniyan says:

    Wathsa,

    It seems you don’t update yourself for long!!!

    Those who killed at Aranhalawa is with the government at the moments as ministers and deputy leader of SLFP.

    You heard the name ‘Karuna Amman’? Who was given presidential pardon for those crime.

    Few more crimes of him if you want to know: 600 policemen and Kathankudy mosque shooting!!!

  244. LKsword says:

    You are my man, shingala.

    You have a very valid point… Very thought provoking. It’s too bad if Dutugemunu was re-born as Velu, but he did his job extremely well this time around too.

    Any comment about what his next life would be…???

    Good stuff! I LOVE the part where you say Velu murdered in daylight fellow Tamil groups en masse. Sweet… so sweet!

    UMMMMMaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

    m.sivananthan

    what about farook’s arse. It is there for all to see. Is it farook’s?

    I know the soldier is sinhalese. Don’t ask me how i can identify sinhalese.Maybe the posture or whatever. I have moved with sinhalese more than tamils. I can immediatly identify them in the west too, though i sometimes make mistake with tamils.

  246. Kaduvan says:

  250. lankan girl says:

    It is funny! Every time someone says “MR and his regime has committed mass murder of civilians” Lots of people reply immidiately by saying “What about Parabha?”

    So the argument is “If Prabha can kill innocent Sinhala people, why can’t MR kill innocent Tamil people?”

    So even after his death Prabha remains the role model for MR and his men! MR and Gota and following the same road Prabha followed. They are causing the same sort of destruction. They have now started using live bullets against young Sinhalese men as well. So let’s see how long this Prabha II will last. And how many lives they will take.

  251. M.Sivananthan says:

    FAROOK’s arse?

    So, your claims are shattering. Get a life man!

  252. Rattapakse says:

    Didn’t you hear about ‘Blood Brothers’.

    VP and his organisation was fell due to ‘swollen head’ that followed victory at Elephant Pass.

    And the MR will fall due to the same following the victory against the former.

    Sri Lankan forces’ primary job is to destroy the national youths. 1971, 1988-1989 and 2009. The last one was out side South.

    Now, bored, they have returned to the South, starting at Katunayake FTZ. Knowing this MR try giving him Vegetable selling jobs. It may not work out. So Sinhala youths should prepare for the worse sooner than later.

  253. Kaduvan says:

    You mean his current leader, Mahinda Aiya?

    I fully agree with you in that case.

  254. TRN says:

    no shankar tapped telephone calls & a video is different.

    Tapped call can identify the 2 telephone numbers connecting.

    My logic is the video has to be proven by witness that it was the Sri Lankan war and identify the perpetrators.
    If the video was taken by a SL army person it has to be smuggled it out of the country. Then handed it to Ch 4.

    If the GOSL knows that this is authentic & can be taken up with out a witness, they are real fools. They should have good grounds to reject this if what you say is right. A govt should know what it is doing before they open the mouth.

    Anyway the UNSG had got his last laugh, after humiliating Sri Lanka in front of the rest of the world by allowing this video. It suits right as MR & some of his stooges acted like baboons during May 1st !!

    What ever happens with this video this type of incidents should not occur again in Sri Lanka. I am sure many like this would have happened since 1971. Were there any prosecutions done? I can vaguely remember there was a case for ambilipitiya school children massacre… I am not sure what the out come of it was.

  255. victim says:

    Thanks for your cruel opinion, but these allegations are real and it is the IC,UN and ICC to decide what really took place and what cause of action needed to prevent the genocide.

  256. Checker says:

    How will he understand…he is a typical Singaleese

  257. shankar says:

    TRN
    I think this video is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many more hanging over the govt’s head. When they started their stunts against fonseka this video came out. Then when they turned the screws on him some more, the issaipriya pictures and prabhas small son with bullet wounds turned up.Then i think the govt tread a bit more carefully after that and nothing more has come,but i’am sure many more on the pipeline. Remember it was not only fonseka they purged but many top officers who had close links to him,also they reshuffled a lot the rank and file too.
    They just followed india’s tommyrot about a coup brewing,because india did not like fonseka,because he is pro pakistan and china and wary of india.

    As for the authenticity of the videos i think it can be proved without the person taking it coming as a witness. I don’t think those who sent it over will ever appear as a witness.That is impractical and these international courts will have other methods of verifying. They have now a lot of experience in these matters as srilanka is not the first case they have handled.

  258. TRN says:

    For an ICC in the Hague to start an investigation into alleged war crimes the host country has to consent or a decision from UN member states through an appropriate inter-governmental forum should follow. This was stated by the UNSG office.

    So you think by looking at the video only they will decide really took place?

    what is cruel about my opinion?

    Is it because i do not except genocide or do not agree with your opinion?

    Isn’t your goal EElam?

    Who started the war?
    Why did yo tamils start the war?
    You lived in Colombo ad travelled in Colombo without fear, bit we couldnt travel to North and East many years ago.
    So why did you want a seperate land?
    Why did you all leave the country? Is it because of the war or to earn money in the western world.
    Lets be honest, tamils were uneducated and couldnt speak a word of English. Most of you still cant.
    If the country and its people have ill treated you, why do you wait until you get a foriegn nationality/ passport and the want to go back to Sri Lanka to invest in land and business

  261. jaan says:

    sinhalese r killed by LTTE tamil terrorist. i have watched dis video and they talk in tamil.. i mean the people with guns on thier hand.. its on youtube.. LTTE is a terrorist group, same like Al Qaeeda.

    Yes ,there is no war in srilanka.It’s called STATE TERRORISIM.GOVERNMENT GENOCIDE AGAINST OWN PEOPLE.THATS WHAT SRILANKA GOVERMENT DID SINCE 1956.WE NEVER FORGET AND FORGIVE YOU GUYS.TIME FOR PAYING THE PRICE

  263. Mura says:

    SRILANKA GOVERMENT START KILLING TAMIL SINCE 1956.THAT TIME THERE IS NO LTTE OR PIRABAKARAN.YOU GUYS SHOULD TAKE LOOK.

    Who started the war?

    SWRD BANDARANAYAKE

    Why did yo tamils start the war?

    TO GET THE REFUSED RIGHTS BACK

    You lived in Colombo ad travelled in Colombo without fear, JOKING: YOU HEARD OF VIOLENCE AGAINST TAMILS IN 1958, 1977, 1983 AND MANY UNREPORTED….

    Why did you all leave the country?

    TO SAVE LIFE

    Lets be honest, tamils were uneducated and couldnt speak a word of English. Most of you still cant:

    PATHETIC YOU. TROUBLES STARTED BECAUSE TAMILS WERE IN GOVERNMENTS JOBS WHEN BRITISH LEFT DUE TO THEIR EDUCATION AND GOOD ENGLISH. READ SOME HISTORY ABOUT CEYLON. OUT OF 12 MISSIONARY SCHOOLS 9 WERE IN JAFFNA PENINSULA.

    If the country and its people have ill treated you, why do you wait until you get a foriegn nationality/ passport and the want to go back to Sri Lanka to invest in land and business:

    OHH, STOP WITH THAT LAST GLASS OF MENDIS. YOU ARE DRUNK MAN….

  267. Nalin says:

    What is war crime?
    Conventions of War Crime I think were initially drawn up to avoid something like The Holocaust happening ever again. These days the West who STILL(not for long) has the power to bend wordings, use it control the world. Otherwise who can say things happening in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya does not amount to War Crime. Classic example is the murder of unarmed frail old man Osama Bin Laden, US says it was done for National Security,… What B***t,… Jon Snow get a life

  268. Nalin says:

    Sri Lanka defeated the most ruthless terrorist group in the whole wide world, post world war two, world learned suicide bombing from these ruthless idiots. Sinhalese and Tamils were engaged in a conventional war, LTTE boast of their civil administration, police, army, navy and even air force. After getting beaten badly why are all the Tamil Diaspora now crying,… I have always had this opinion that this is a War which was meant to happen a long time ago, if not for the European invasions.

    Colombo always fed the Tamil people living in the north even at the height of the war in mid 90′s. And above all Sinhalese are the friendliest people in the world!, don’t have to look far just have a look at our Cricket team.

  277. shankar says:

    TRN

    You maybe right about SF,but i haven’t much confidence in his cronies and JVP etc. He moves in a bad circle. The govt is also using sledgehammer on these people and they will retaliate as long as it puts the govt into trouble.

    As for the video being fake,i’am not an expert on these technical matters and prefer not to comment on things iam not sure of and become a joke like sivananthan.It is upto the experts to sort it out.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish, I say! These vermin who killed entire villages-men,women and children…even pregnant mothers…and that fat murdering satan of a leader called Pirubaharan-the sun of these Tamils, now have the gall to point fingers at entire Sri Lanka after being totally defeated by the SL army and sent to their deserved hell by them. These LTTE bastards who sent innocent children dressed up for war with cyanide pills, when the tide turned against them came with their tiger tails between legs to surrender…..so are we to molly coddle them?? The entire lot should have been roasted to death at Galle face greens for all the Sinhalese parents who lost their sons to the war to see…now that’s justice!! And you murdering scums in Britain, Europe and America who are the worst murdering criminals in the world want to prosecute us?? Come and get, if you can!!!

  281. Karu says:

    No body wants to kill anyone. But unfortunate truth is that tamil tigers killed many sinhalese. Though I am a Buddhist and want to love not hate, 30 year war by tamils was too much. To compare tamils who are in high positions in govt and private sector to blacks in USA is unfair. Go to any good school and you see more tamils than sinhalese.

    No one died due to terrorism for two years. Now tamils want to take the revenge. The cycle continues.

  282. Sinha-le says:

    Name one country in the world which gave one third of the country to a minority less than 30% of the population….this is the pipe dream called “Eelaam”. The so-called “diaspora” who crowd gullible countries like Canada,Australia,France,etc are NOTHING BUT ECONOMIC REFUGEES.ANY Tamil can go and live ANYWHERE in Sri Lanka-this luxury is NOT available to Sinhalese.These “refugees” who had got fat living luxuriously in other countries want their collective guilt assuaged by giving money to LTTE murderers so that they can claim to help a “cause”.Western countries should deport all these leeches back to SL so we can see what “grievances” these Ealaamists have.By the way, they will never go back…its much better at where they live,isn’t it?

Here is a jerk who really enjoy putting women to misery and I read even bless this union!! Utter farce!!! Jayalalithas and Karunanidhis of this world will someday reap the whirlwind they sow.A good LTTE rebel is a DEAD LTTE rebel….so we can all expect the “rehabilitated” former-fighters to take up their hidden arm-caches as soon as the opportunity presents-something sane people should never again allow!!

    Dear Anonymous,

    Comments from Sinhalese people are a reflection of the hell they have been through at the hands of murdering scum LTTE, effectively fear stricken prisoners of their own country trapped here to die daily of LTTE bombs that target the innocent populace-rather than face-to-face combat like they boast in their web rags….without LIVING and experiencing THAT, do not judge Sinhalese; we didn’t start this-THEY did.
    NO MORE TURNING THE OTHER CHEEK ROUTINE. This may be contrary to Buddhism…but first, we must LIVE….to practice anything.

    About the videos….the LTTE..was MURDERING their own kith and kin even with the faintest suspicion…and military garb could have been worn by SO many different factions or other groups at that time…nobody can say for sure. Sinhalese voices? DUBBED by others.See how this can go? Why jump and say SL army??

    Even if it IS SL army….do you LTTE scum really expected anything else from the army after ALL you DID????? Come on,thamby…drop that stinking Palmyra toddy cup and THINK again ,fool!!
