The screening is due to be followed by a discussion where the documentaries director Callum Macrae is also due to participate.


According to Indian media reports the screening of the documentary ahead of the

United Nations Human Rights Council Session in Geneiva is an attempt to daunt the island.


However against this backdrop Indian Minister of External Affairs Salman Kurshid added that the authenticity of the photographs contained in the documentary could not be verified.


Moreover Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Jayalalitha has requested of the Indian Centre to impose sanctions against the island whilst gaining impetus from Channel-4's latest documentary into alleged war atrocities.
