Sri Lanka's Killing Fields

Last year, Channel 4 in the UK prepared a devastating documentary about atrocities committed during the final weeks of the civil war in Sri Lanka. It provided strong evidence of atrocities perpetrated by participants in the conflict, confirming the conclusions of a panel set up by the UN Secretary-General. Since then, the Sri Lankan government appointed a commission to study these issues. It issued a rather timid report late last year that does not begin to address matters adequately. Channel 4 has prepared a sequel, with new evidence of atrocities. It will be broadcast for the first time next Wednesday at 1055 London time. For details, click here.

Have you come across the report of The People's Tribunal on Sri Lanka, published following an event in Dublin, Ireland (January, 2010)?

This is not truth. Here I'm giving some you tube links. There are the people who were there at the time of war and the last movement. That the truth and not someone hiding and giving statements.
