Berlin – Sri Lanka has warned the United Nations against allowing a British-made documentary about the Asian country’s civil war to be shown on the sidelines of a human rights meeting.

The island nation’s ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva says the Channel 4 documentary, titled “No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka,” contains a narrative that is “discredited, uncorroborated and unsubstantiated.”

    Repeating the same old story about the CH4 series being uncorroborated and unsubstantiated by finding every flimsy alternate explanation for the never ending pictures and videos that keep cropping up is getting rather stale.
    If there was one thing the Tamil diaspora was very good at it was to tell their side of the story no matter how out of proportion it was. This helped to create a very adverse view of Sri Lanka and made the fight against the LTTE a very hard one to fight. Eventually this perception was reversed and the major powers blessed the military push to eliminate this menace. Now slowly the tide is being turned back again. Earlier it was the riots of 1983 that put a black mark on Sri Lanka now it is the genocide of the closing days of the war. No investigation was done properly in 83 and no investigation is planned now either. Our reputation precedes us. No amount of denying and protesting is ever going to do any good. The major powers are not buffoons to believe these denials. In fact hard evidence against some of the perpetrators are in their possession.

    It is about time the Government took a stand. Left-over terror money is doing all the talking for channel 4. Take channel 4 to courts, please.
