Former Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian S. Kanakaratnam has pointed out that not a single incident which was telecast over the Channel Four in Britain has been witnessed during the final stage of the humanitarian operation.
Mr. Kanakaratnam who managed to save his life in Wellamulli Waikkal pointed out that the LTTE terrorists, during the final stage, murdered civilians brutally. At least or over 600 civilians were ruthlessly murdered. Any one can say anything for their existence. People do many things for their existence living abroad. Many particularly domiciled in countries such as London and Canada are engaged in an untiring effort to destroy the peace enjoyed by Sri Lankans. However, he said he was prepared to respond to any queries made by anyone from him about the incidents that took place during the last stage of the operation. But no one had made such queries from him.
Those who express views in programmes which were telecast over Channel Four had not seen to themselves the final stage of the humanitarian operation. They would not have expressed such views if they had personally witnessed the events. He said he thought that they would have to die in LTTE territory without food and drink. But they succeeded in coming out. This was mainly due to the support of the Security Forces. Mr. Kanakaratnam underlined that those making false propaganda about the Sri Lankan Government and the troops do not know the reality.
