UNP parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella has said the government failed to tactfully address the controversial Channel 4 video.

Kiriella has warned that in the event the Channel 4 video is screened in Tamil Nadu,Sri Lanka’s image would be further tarnished.

He has told parliament that the government could have avoided such a situation by tactfully addressing the issue.

He has added thatSri Lankawas in a mess with regard to the Darusman Report.<p>

However, Kiriella has said that the government had acknowledged that there had been human rights violations in the country by agreeing to address the issue in agreement withIndia.

He has further noted that Sri Lanka had put herself in a disadvantageous position by ignoring 99 complaints on human rights violations confirmed by the Human Rights Commission.
