The Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse points out that groups which attempted to give life to the LTTE during the final stages of the war are acting against Sri Lanka at the Geneva Human Rights Council session.

Responding to the latest videotape telecast by the British Channel 4 simultaneous to the Human Rights Council session, the Defence Secretary pointed out that the Sri Lankan government never announced no-fire zones in order to gather civilians.

The defence forces were able to liberate Kilinochchi by the first week of January 2009.

The A 9 route which is the main supply route to Jaffna was also liberated by the defence forces while they were also able to liberate Mulativ.

By this time, the LTTE chased away the residents of Mulativ from their houses and gathering them in the coastal area in order to use them as a human shield.

The Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse pointed out that the groups which speak on human rights now did not request from the LTTE to remove the human shield and to accept defeat.

Instead they attempted to create new hope on the life of the LTTE.

The Defence Secretary also pointed out that the defence forces announced no-fire zones targeting areas where civilians had already gathered.

The Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapakse further pointed out that the groups which raise war crimes allegations against Sri Lanka should draw their attention towards other parts of the world following the September 11 attacks.
