The Sri Lanka Army today said that the latest Channel-4 video, released last night, featuring two soldiers, is a fake.

"Persons appearing in this latest video are not from the Sri Lanka Army. This is yet another attempt to justify their earlier video," Military spokesman Maj.Gen Ubaya Madawela said.

In the newest episode released by Channel-4, a witness, who had worked under the then head of 58th division of the Army, Brigadier Shavendra Silva, in the frontline towards the end of the civil war, claimed that Brigadier was ordered by Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa “to finish the job by whatever means necessary.”

Meanwhile, deputy permanent representative of Sri Lanka to the UN, Major General Shavendra Silva dismissed the new allegation when he was confronted outside the United Nations building in New York by the Channel-4 journalists.

    The reason being most of the compnaies in UK are being bankcrupt. Their companies are closed down one by one... they will do this kind of low level activities to be survieved.

    Ezhilini Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:52 AM

    Vani Kumar Thursday, 28 July 2011 03:19 PM

    I have never been a great fan of CBK, but I must applaud her bravery. Thank you CBK.

    dinesh Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:59 AM

    Beddagane Sanjeewa Thursday, 28 July 2011 09:56 AM

    Shak Thursday, 28 July 2011 05:09 AM

    Why is Channel 4 so anti Sri Lankan when they are not a global station? True global stations like BBC, CNN are not like this at all. Channel 4 has a big vendetta towards Sri Lanka.

    Mifaz Friday, 29 July 2011 04:57 AM

    I would have expelled my words if you were in front of me.

    CW Thursday, 28 July 2011 10:16 AM

    Wait for the next fake video. Will be a beteer thriller.

    G1 Thursday, 28 July 2011 10:11 AM

    You mean like Gen.Sarath Fonseka????

    Bumba Thursday, 28 July 2011 05:53 AM

    Ha!

    curious Thursday, 28 July 2011 05:57 AM

    You don't know buddy. How about a foreign trip? It is not betrayal, it is telling the truth.

    sajitha Thursday, 28 July 2011 06:00 AM

    Come on.. dont you know that Channel 4 second senior in charge is a Tamil guy from sri lankan who funded LTTE operations in London.

    kattai jeya Thursday, 28 July 2011 06:14 AM

    Why Channel 4 hates Sri Lanka so much?

    sanjaya Thursday, 28 July 2011 06:14 PM

    hello.....TV stations in Sri lanka........why cann't u make a film like this on incidents happened in other countries and release.....no need to prove but just make a hit film

    willows Thursday, 28 July 2011 06:43 AM

    Channel 4 funded by LTTE rump, so don't take anything serious.

    Tomsamusa Thursday, 28 July 2011 08:12 PM

    The whole world is a fake for thre pakses and their gullibles!
    What a bunch of jokers,worse than their best freind gaddafyi.
    Very soon all Will find out who the fake monkies are.

    Hash Thursday, 28 July 2011 08:19 PM

    If its not true, why cant they just study the video and prove its a hoax ? other than just telling "hey, this is a fake video"

    sparks Thursday, 28 July 2011 12:02 PM

    However it is better than the low level activity shown on the video.

    malkanthi Thursday, 28 July 2011 07:43 AM

    This is the whole problem, we must speak with ONE voice. Too many people making statements contracts each other without their knowledge.

    Javi Thursday, 28 July 2011 08:12 AM

    C4 has media freedom not like SL

    migara Thursday, 28 July 2011 08:14 AM

    all the Fernandos in sri lanka must sue channel 4. they are ruining the Fernando name.

    Bumba Thursday, 28 July 2011 03:48 AM

    The first response may be army or bad oil is to deny without making any investigation. it is a case of losing credibility. Way to go for a nation fast becoming a "Banana Republic".

    Gaya Thursday, 28 July 2011 03:50 AM

    Miller FAILED in front of Shavendra.lol
    BTW they want us to believe some blurry video of a person where you can't find anything saying that he's a Sri Lankan,no voice,at least no skin color?Do they think just the name 'Fernando' means he's Sri Lankan?lol

    Bumba Thursday, 28 July 2011 03:57 AM

    A so called government politician when interviewed by the International media on the fist Channel 4 video said that as the Sri Lanka army has over a one hundred thousand men and women, the people in that video can be identified. How come now they say the people in the video are not soldiers so quickly. Fishy!

    Jathi wadiya Thursday, 28 July 2011 03:55 AM

    Who own this channel 4, why not few of our army boys make a vist to there place, even overseas its ok, our sinhala blood is thicker than water, we want take crap from nobody

    NN Friday, 29 July 2011 02:16 AM

    good question, but people in this thread talking about c4 didn't ask this intelligent question them self ... LOL

    Sunil Lanka Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:05 AM

    So inquiry is the only way out clear our name

    Shan Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:07 AM

    Channel 4 is a SCHEAMER....

    Solider Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:09 AM

    Ubaya madiwela know every person in the army, including deserters.... These guys issue statements even without investigations.

    Ranger Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:10 AM

    Speaking in a generalisticand unbiased manner, any thing said or done against the regime is a fake or unpatriotic. This officer seems to blabber without being realistic or fully knowledgeable of this problem. We are Sri Lankan, so let's simply accept what is being dished out.

    Kivulegedara Thursday, 28 July 2011 04:11 AM

    Its Simple, Soldiers will not betray their motherland.

    TMA Thursday, 28 July 2011 08:46 AM

    Oh! new type eh?

    Gaya Thursday, 28 July 2011 08:52 AM

    Yes that might be the answer of C4 and LTTE terrorists too.Poor Them.

    Vani Kumar Thursday, 28 July 2011 01:57 PM

    To Gaya: Why no comments about the comments from former President CBK about C4 Video?
