“Story of Meena Krishnamoorthy is crucial to war crimes submission. She is one of just three Australians who were in the conflict until the end”, said Australia’s “7.30 Report”, the nightly current affairs program of ABC. The program aired on Tuesday, October 18th.
Ministry of Defence response to her allegations saying “Meena was an LTTE cadre who is portrayed in the documentary as a civilian Australian national who had come to Sri Lanka during the war to learn Tamil which happens to be her mother tongue.”
“A number of defence personnel and political commentators are of the view that it was diabolically fabricated and designed as propaganda for the defeated LTTE terrorist outfit. Sri Lankan military has information to prove that she was a LTTE cadre who served in Castro’s office and that she had undergone military training.
Defence Intelligence sources said they believed that the documentary had been produced aiming at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Perth, Western Australia, from October 28.
Military sources have found all the details of the so-called eye witness proving Meena was not an innocent civilian but an identified LTTE cadre who actively worked for the terror outfit. At the final phase of the humanitarian operation by the Sri Lankan forces, she had managed to get shelter at an IDP camp in Vavuniya and later had left for Australia as she had connections there.” MOD further says.
