By Colombo Telegraph

Allegations to be unveiled in high court of ‘systemic’ policy of abuse from 2003 to 2008, the Guardian reports.

“Britain will face fresh charges of breaching international law over the alleged torture and killing of prisoners during the war in Iraq, which began almost exactly 10 years ago. The allegations will be unveiled in the high court, when Britain will stand accused of a “systemic” policy of abuse committed over five years, from 2003 to 2008.” the newspaper said.

    Impossible! This is an international conspiracy to tarnish the image of the British! Shame on them. Poor Sri Lanka is also plagued by these same conspirators. A pox on all their houses! :O

      Don’t worry Bean. This accusation is for a media game and a show blitz.

      How could it be true? British have never ever involved in torture or killings of civilians and prisoners. British army bombed Dresden with popcorn and only stroked testes of those Kenyans. They have behaved like angels through out history. So, don’t worry they have ways and means to come out clean as usual.

        Tanku, tanku dear Leela for the reassurance. The whole world knows that the British army bombed Dresden with popcorn while the army of Sri RajaPakistan bombed the no fire zone with isso wadai. So why in God’s name do these international conspirators try to tarnish the image of the British and Sri RajaPakistan governments? Thankfully the British and the Sri RajaPakistan governments can take solace in what the Buddha once said. “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” When that great day comes along, the forces of evil that plot against the governments of these two great nations she feel the wrath of the Gods and they shall face eternal damnation in hell, consumed by brimstone and fire. I pray, that we both dear Leela, may live to see that wonderful day

        Amen ;)

        The link given below of police torture,is another blantant attempt by jealous suddahs to tarnish the image of our beloved Fatherland, Sri RajaPakistan.

    If British soldiers are to be tried then it shows that justice is alive and kicking in Britain. Wrongdoers are being punished. In our case any one talking about war crimes is dubbed a traitor. First zero casualties, then humanitarian operation, now no procedures available?

      Agreed. Even convicted accuseds are released deliberately.

    American military who abused/tortured Iraqui & other citizens in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and in Guantanamo, have been indicted in military courts and punished.
    Britain is about to investigate similar offences.
    Democracy is really ‘practiced’ in both countries.

    A sad fact; Sri Lankans enjoy greater rights in UK than they do in SL

    Frankly, do we want the world to adopt SL system or modern Western system!!

    In SL not too many to be tried,
    Its mainly the top tier,
    Remove Gota, a lot will change,
    Not just SL, even brother will get a better name

    Gota can go back to US and offer his expertise he claim to have, if he has any, he wont be tried.
