Experts checking Channel 4 film: LLRC

2011 Jul 17

The Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) said yesterday it was still examining the Channel 4 film on allegations of war crimes committed by the LTTE and the security forces in Sri Lanka and telecast early last month.

LLRC spokesman Lakshman Wickremasinghe said the Channel 4 film, which was released on June 14 showing alleged war crimes by the military and the LTTE was viewed and analysed by the Commission but had to be examined by experts.

He said it was still uncertain as to whether details of the Channel 4 film would be included in LLRC report which was being prepared.

Meanwhile United Nations Human Rights Chief Navaneethan Pillai earlier this month warned Sri Lanka not to take too long to probe the war crimes allegations and said the international community might to take action against the country if it failed to do so.

“We will have experts looking into the technical analysis of the film such as the audio, synchronization and other details to determine it genuineness,” Mr. Wickremasinghe said.

He said the LLRC had not written to Channel 4 asking for more information.

“It is still uncertain as to whether the commission will request for further information from Channel 4 as it has not given any information on previous occasions,” he said.
