Sri Lanka's Killing Fields

Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished

Screened at the UN in Geneva and New York and also shown to politicians at the House of Commons, the European Parliament and key figures in the US Senate, Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields prompted comment from leading political figures around the world, including Prime Minister David Cameron. Yet these war crimes still have yet to be properly investigated or those responsible brought to account – despite UN sources suggesting the Sri Lankan government forces killed up to 40 thousand civilians – perhaps many more in this period.

This powerful follow-up film, also presented by Jon Snow, presents damning new video evidence of war crimes including contemporaneous documents, eye-witness accounts, photographic stills and videos relating to how exactly events unfolded during the final days of the civil war. It investigates who was responsible – the results point to the highest levels of the Sri Lankan government and complicity at the top of the army.

Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished forensically examines four specific cases and investigates who was responsible. The cases are: the deliberate heavy shelling of civilians and a hospital in the ‘No Fire Zone'; the strategic denial of food and medicine to hundreds and thousands of trapped civilians – defying the legal obligation to allow humanitarian aid into a war zone; the killing of civilians during the ‘rescue mission’ and the systematic execution of naked and bound LTTE prisoners – featuring new chilling video footage of a 12-year-old boy who has been brutally executed.

Despite pressure from human rights groups and the report by a UN-appointed panel of experts which called for a thorough international investigation into alleged violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, the Sri Lankan government’s internal inquiry, ‘The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission’ published in December last year, failed to conduct any kind of rigorous investigation into the allegations of war crimes. It specifically denied that any civilians were knowingly targeted with heavy artillery. Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished explores the reasons behind the apparent international inaction at the time, in calling the government of Sri Lanka to account.

Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished presents shocking new video footage and evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity which trace ultimate responsibility up the highest echelons of the chain of command. This film asks questions of those who still hold the reins of power in Sri Lanka – President Rajapaksa, commander in chief and his brother Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaska – and two former army chiefs who have landed prime diplomatic posts since the war ended and immunity from prosecution.

With the England cricket team set to tour Sri Lanka once again this month and Sri Lanka now confirmed as the venue for the next commonwealth heads of government meeting in 2013, this film is a stark reminder of the terrible suffering of a people who have been failed and forgotten by the international community.

Even though diffusing, deviating and hijacking the need to address the crux of the crisis in Sri Lanka, the US-tabled resolution at the UNHRC and the associated diplomatic deliberations and muscle-flexing seem to be artfully fixing the onus on India, in lines with the long legacy of Indo-US competition ruining the aspirations of genocide-affected Eezham Tamils. India could seize the opportunity and could come out with alternative righteous options to counter the trap, but the guilty-filled Congress regime is incapable of them. As New Delhi’s stand has been repeatedly proved an impediment to justice in the island and at the same time New Delhi is also not doing anything on its own other than shopping there, the question comes whether removal of the Congress regime is a prerequisite to India’s progress in the region and in world affairs, writes TamilNet political commentator in Colombo. Read more…..

Conference Review

Conference on International Protection of Human Rights in the 21st Century – Case Study on Sri Lanka organized by Center for War Victims and Human Rights was held on Feb 21, 2012 at Pearson Conference Center, Toronto, Canada.

Bracing the cold weather academics, lawyers, activists, MPs, and the public filled the conference center to capacity. The conference began with the speech from CWVHR president Anton Philip who outlined the history and development of human rights instruments such as Universal Declaration of Human Rights, United Nations Convention Against Torture and International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

The panel speaker Ms. Deridre McConnell from Tamil Centre for Human Rights (London, UK) explained the historical, political and social conditions that resulted in the genocide of Tamils in Sri Lanka. She showed that the conditions Tamil face in Sri Lanka is worse than apartheid in South Africa.

Danilo Reyes program officer from Asian Human Rights Commission (Hong Kong) spoke on the topic of “Accountability in constitutionally entrenched impunity”. He explored whether is it possible to find accountability in a country where violations find impunity from the constitution.   He urged that this has to be combated and addressed if we are to make any progress with respect to accountability in Sri Lanka.

Rev Dr. S J Emmanuel from Global Tamil Forum (London, UK) provided an activist point of view of the Tamils struggle in Sri Lanka. Read more….

These criminals associated with the raging white van murder syndrome had been freed from the police custody unlawfully and taken away by Western zone seiner DIG Anura Senanayake who had arrived at the police station early morning at about 4.40 yesterday. Anything of this most lawless Idi Amin style operation had not been recorded in the police registers. read more…

    Wednesday night (14th. March 2012) millions of people all over the world were shocked when they watched the Channel4 film Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished. The cruelty that took place in Sri Lankan War is hard to put in words; it leaves you speechless. It continued to address the most contradictory question raised, where many western countries and the UN are willing to turn a blind eye; was it a systematic eradication of innocent Tamil civilians that took place during the war? The finger was quite clearly pointed at Mahinda Rajapaksa, the president himself and his brother Gothabaya Rajapaksa, the Defense Secretary.

    The shooting of civilians, the refusal of medicine and food, the intended shelling on ‘no fire zones’ packed with civilians and having the military join the bombed areas and finishing of the jobs is nothing short of GENOCIDE. The execution of the 12 year old son of Prabaharan , the leader of the LTTE was perhaps the most painful image. He was to have been tortured for his father’s whereabouts and then killed.

    In 2011 Channel 4 exposed damning evidence of atrocities committed in the war in Sri Lanka. Jon Snow presents this powerful follow-up film, revealing new video evidence as well as contemporaneous documents, eye-witness accounts, photographic stills and videos relating to how exactly events unfolded during the final days of the civil war.

    We insist that those responsible for these crimes must be arrested and punished immediately.It is a shame to humanity to allow those responsible to continue committing more crimes against humanity.

    Is it fraticide or genocide? Buddhists Sinhalas are also Hindus and of the same DNA.

    And what about LTTE killing of Tamils not to mention of
    Buddhists.

    This gullibility of “Hindu Existence” is the root of our myopia.

    Subramanian Swamy

    • To

      Dr. Subramanian Swamy,

      At least I must convey my thanks personally from me and the whole Hindu Existence Team that exposed our hypocrisy to a Tamil ‘genocide’ or the ‘fratricide’ (not fraticide) as Dr Subramanian Swamy, the President of Janata Dal likes to be termed.

      I never heard that at least Dr Swamy is too concerned about that ‘fratricide’ of tamils-sinhalas in the near past.

      Dr Swamy is now very much interested to probe on DNA Test. And on that line he must tell the Bangladesh (erstwhile East Pakistan) Genocide of Hindus (more than 3,000,000 casualties) is nothing but a ‘fratricide’ and the Murder Muslims were of the same DNA. He will emphatically continue his thesis on the then West Pakistan, i.e. today’s Pakistan, as the genocide of Hindu-Sikh (at least 2,000,000 casualties) by the same DNA Muslims, must be ‘fratricide’. And for that ‘fratricide’, Hindus should keep mum……

      I am not a supporter of LTTE or not any side of the Buddhists-Sinhalas, but at least understand that international conspiracy to rouse arrogance and hatred of the Sikhs (Khalistan) or Buddhists (Sinhala-Buddhist supremacy), may be of Tamils also, so that the eventual HINDU STRENGTH (INDO-HINDU) ROOT may destroy at any cost.

      The international Islamist-Evangelic lobby fortified with the strength of US design, is gradually out rooting all Hindu coverage from International domains. Nepal is on the thrust of China. Hindu Rashtra of Nepal has been changed as a Maoist State. Pakistan and Bangladesh Hindus are raped, tortured, murdered, uprooted everyday by your ‘same DNA’. Sri Lanka also ultimately destroyed its Tamil-Hindu influence from the Golden Lanka (Swarnamoyee Lanka). All the sides of Bharat is now almost Hindu less. And you RSS people are satisfied with a bogus concept of AKHAND BHARAT.

      Have you seen the Channel 4 chilling videos of Tamil cleansing in SL for last 27 years….40000 killed civilians….. 290000 displaced men, women and children….330000 people trapped in conflict areas….. please watch it in an unbiased way…. you will see a mostly Hindu genocide…. Pl tell me how much % of Muslims and Christians figure in Total Tamil population and how many Sinhalas are victimized so far for their Buddhist religious identity?

      Pity of on it that your “fraticide or genocide” debate will not save the existence of Tamil-Hindus in Sri Lanka.

      Our stand is not gullible or not we are myopic. Please watch the Channel 4 videos completely before getting you so.

      Upananda Brahmachari,

      Ed. HINDU EXISTENCE.

    When we raise an issue, should we not also suggest how to act or react? Human life, specially Hindus killing under Sonia-Manmohan-Rahul regime in India and it’s neighboring country, has been a known fact. Every time the killings take place, we Indian cry for few days and after few weeks business goes as usual. It is an unbelievable shame!
