Director of the controversial anti Sri Lankan documentary ‘No Fire Zone’, Callum Macrae has been arrested in Malaysia.


Malaysian security personnel have arrested him for screening his film in Kuala Lumpur.


Callum Macrae is the director of the controversial documentaries ‘No Fire Zone’ and ‘Killing Fields’, both of which were broadcast through Channel 4.


The reputation of Sri Lanka was tarnished following the screening of both documentaries and these films are considered platforms used by the Tamil Diaspora to take their message to the masses.
