Sri Lankan High Commissioner in India Prasad Kariyawasam states that the Channel 4 allegations in their new video that LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran’s 12 year old son was killed by the armed forces are a malicious lie.
In an interview with India’s NDTV, the high commissioner stated that like the first set of productions, this video too is unsubstantiated, uncorroborated and not been checked by any authority.
He added that this is the second time Channel 4 has come up with such baseless allegations.
He also called the video a concoction.
The NDTV reporter also questioned the High Commissioner on the resolution put forward by the United States against Sri Lanka at the Geneva Human Rights sessions.
In response the High Commissioner stated that the Sri Lankan government does not accept this resolution.
He added that the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission was appointed to find a home grown solution and certain recommendations have already been implemented.
He also stated that in time like this international non-governmental organizations and some governments in the west seek to intervene and try to force a hand in Sri Lanka.
