The United States' top intelligence agency, Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) says that the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is the most dangerous and deadly extremist organization in the world. The official website of FBI in its tops story said that LTTE is far more dangerous terrorists outfit than al Queda, Hezbullah or even HAMAS. Read more...

ABC-4 CORNERS telecasts unethical Channel 4-UK an unauthenticated manufactured fiction clip titled “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields”

by Malin Abeyatunge, Melbourne, Australia

Amidst hundreds of oral and written protests by the Sri Lankan community in Australia, It’s appalling that the ABC telecasted the fiction film clip titled “Sri Lanka’s killing fields” borrowed from an unethical broadcaster from UK- Channel 4. Even though the Channel 4 is a public TV funded by the Tax payers, Channel 4 is  alleged to be in the edge of bankruptcy and telecasting this clip would have bought them out of the RED presumably by LTTE funding. The clip which was broadcasted by the ABC is controversial and contentious for the following reasons: 

·        This is not a documentary but compilation of images, clips borrowed from LTTE propaganda machine Tamil net and many other Tamil websites and the AI who coughs for LTTE dollars;

·        Many of the images and footage s shown are fake and unsubstantiated and manufactured to suit the financiers, producers and the Directors and the telecasters;

1.     The Main witness Vani Kumar appears to be very innocent but was a militant operating from UK under LTTE front” Tamil Youth Organization (TYO) and having links with the LTTE. She arrived in Sri Lanka in 2008 at the request of Castro (former head of the LTTE Foreign Division)  and has undergone military training. Hence her depiction of events cannot be treated as impartial;

2.     According to her narration, how can she conclusively say the shelling came from Sri Lankan forces. According to her narration, the viewers get the impression that GoSL was not fighting a war with LTTE but with ordinary civilians and zero retaliation from LTTE sides. In other words, the most brutal terrorist outfit had gone into sleep whilst SL forces were attacking them;

·        The controversial footage where the narrator claims that SL soldiers killing LTTE prisoners is totally a  FAKE. The original of the footage which is now in public domain the killers speak in Tamil but the manufactured one which Channel 4  and ABC telecasted, the killers speak in Sinhalese. How come?;

·        Channel 4 now endorsed by ABC by telecasting it says the photos were taken by mobile cameras. But technical and digital experts who analyzed say that it had come from video filming and those experts challenge the Forensic expert who endorsed it as authenticated to Channel 4;

·        There are many distorted information in the narration like;

1.     Before Killinochhi was captured, it was not the Government who herded them to Mulathivu but the LTTE to use them as a laborers and human shields;

2.     Narrator mentions that war was unequal? What do you expect when you are fighting a conventional war with the most brutal terrorist outfit who possess military power in land, sea and air and also suicide bombers?

3.     The narrator continued to use the 3 member Panel Report as a UN report. This is completely wrong. This was a report called by UNSG  by appointing three outsiders for the UNSG to get some feed back of the conflict during the last phase of the war. There is no UN security Council or the UN Human Rights Council approval to call this “a UN Report” and latest being that UNSG has conveniently suspended proceeding further. 

4.     There is a bearded Tamil old man in front of the UN gate says “they are at our throat” Now he doesn’t say who “They “ are whether he meant the LTTE or the Government forces. But the narrator attempts to hoodwink the viewers that the old man meant was Government forces;

 If we analyze the whole clip, there are many technical, digital, narrative flaws which are exhaustive and what I mentioned above only a few of those. Lastly ABC is a public corporation funded by the Australian Tax payers and ABC should be more responsible airing unauthenticated fake videos and clips to mislead the viewers.

What is really happening in Sri Lanka today is that a blood thirsty racist group led by some misled Tamils called LTTE is terrorizing against the Government of Sri Lanka and its people irrespective of their ethnicity with an intention of carving out a separate state. There is no conflict as such between Sinhalese and Tamil communities in Sri Lanka. In fact, the majority of the Tamil community lives in peace and harmony among the Sinhalese population through out the country apart from the Northern part of Sri Lanka. The entire Sinhalese and the Muslims population who lived in the Northern area for centuries were either killed or chased away completely by the LTTE Tamil Tiger terrorists. At the moment, not a single Sinhalese or Muslim is living in Jaffna, but, many thousands of Tamils are living in Colombo in peace with the other communities. Based on 2001 census, the Tamil population in Colombo district is 12.1% (see 2001 census). So, who is discriminated ? Tamils or Sinhalese? Do you need more evidence ?
