    apparently this movie has been funded by Leela alias ‘K A Sumansekera’ using the money from the Lee Potter scheme ;-)

      Good one meya, otherwise Gewal Hora LEELA (Tsunamihora’s Bootlicker) would have said this was funded by TNA, Sambandan, Tamil Diaspora & UK/Canada to tarnish the image of his lover Balu Gotha and MaRa.
      If I only get hold of that B* Leela, I will show her who this Wanathe shiromi is.

    At least three of these films criticize the British government, politicians and celebrities. When will Sri Lanka have such freedom?

    It is naive to think that any movie will get far so in the British documentary AWARDS, if it was doctored or fake. Such accusations can be easily disproved in the age of advanced technology….it seems only the criminals involved in this horrible massacre, and it’s apologists, keep clinging to the false premise that it has been doctored, the usual easy way out of admitting the truth, by the Sri Lankan government. All videos are fake, all accusations are false, and all those who speak the truth are “out to get” a speck of a country called Sri Lanka. Let’s face it, we are not THAT important. If the Rajapaksa regime were innocent of wrong doing, they would have welcomed ANY investigations, and not stalled them, nor being uncooperative. We have been the recipients of aid from many nations, and constantly go around with begging bowls, so what is this sudden national “pride” that prevents us from cooperating with the international bodies, to get answers for the thousands of Sri Lankans, who still look for their loved ones? This is Rajapaksa Land where nothing makes sense.

      Do share this information with links…was it found to be a fake by the Rajapaksa experts on science and technology? Because if it was found to be so, there are avenues to take this with international courts.
      Fake tapes against governments are a serious issue, and SL MUST complain about it.

    Not only the MR govt Forces that are guilty of this massacre, even KP and crowd who betrayed VP and LTTE are responsible who cunningly came here under escort from Malaysia and afforded protection and luxury by MR today waiting to take over the NCP body of governance with or without the 13th.

      “even KP and crowd who betrayed VP and LTTE”

      gamini,what did he do to betray.I also felt that he was not abducted but came willingly,but how can we assume he betrayed just because he came like that.We got to be fair by the guy and not accuse him without proof.

        Shankar, are you serious that KP was unaware of the fate of VP and the LTTE to leave for the beachfront at Puthukudiirippu from their stronghold Kilinochchi to be massacred? Take DBSJ who tried to mislead about KP’s arrival in Sri Lanka with minute detail of the fiasco trying to project he was abducted by our sleuths, in his article that appeared to coincide in the Local dailies at that time. Obviously these individuals were aware of the fate of VP and the rest. KP naturally felt he was safer here in Sri Lanka than living outside and falling a victim to another LTTEer who knows the whole truth.

          “KP naturally felt he was safer here in Sri Lanka than living outside and falling a victim to another LTTEer who knows the whole truth.”

          Or those who provided protection to KP would have threatened to withdraw it.

    No wonder as claimed by one Dr. Kulatunge who stated in this web, sometime ago, that the PSTD among the Forces are very high and a worrying factor today after killing thousands of unarmed Tamils in this gruesome manner after the Seniors, soiling the hands of the rest also to take part in this drama of Massacre, for the guilt to be shared.

    Public display of the Poor taste of stupid British Media. Our stupidity of will be on display in November 2013 when CHOGM is held in SL. Callum Macrae will be here to capture the stupidity of Sri Lankans and when it is released the GOSL will have no place on the earth to hide.

    Whether the documentary is real or fake is a side issue. I agree with M.A. Sumanthiran that Sri Lanka needs healing and it needs to preserve the rule of law and democracy for ALL Sri Lankans. I hope brighter days are ahead for Sri Lanka.

    The original of this Video is the LTTE cadres firing and killing surrendered Sri Lankan soldiers. Overseas Living LTTE tamils modified that video and selling as Killing fields. they Don’t say that it is the LTTE – KILLING FIELDs.

    The original video is available in youtube.
