The international community seems to be unaware that it was being deceived by a well thought out strategy of LTTE rump groups, the Military said today.

Military spokesman Ruwan Wanigasooriya said the latest video by London based Channel-4 television station showed that the propaganda machinery of LTTE Rump groups had a dominating influence at the UNHRC.

“This has been the case ever since the end of the Humanitarian Operations in Sri Lanka,” Brigadier Wanigasooriya said.

He said some of the recently released photos said to be of Prabhakaran'sson have been in the public domain for anyone to see.

“If at all these photographsshould have been put out at once. The fact is that those with vested interests do not want to do so or hand them over to law enforcement agencies with the relevant evidence (that they claim as being beyond any reasonable doubt) for investigations.  This shows that their objective is to keep the tempo going before each UNHRC session,” Brigadier Wanigasooriya said.

He said this was part of a major campaign against Sri Lanka by all interest groups.

“It is very clear that publishing photographs of alleged violations in Sri Lanka at the most opportune time -- well timed and spaced, is a good marketing strategy and the LTTE Rump do not want to lose that leverage,” he said.

    We believe it as we are in Sri Lanka.
    But these words must come from a democratically elected person to go in to the International community, it must be at least a.minister.

    I totally agree with the above comments by the Army. There is a coterie of hard core ex LTTE supporters in most of the western countries who thrive on misinformation to tarnish the image of Sri Lanka. They have the funds, the organization, the contacts in western countries. They do nothing else except bad mouth Sri Lanka at every opportunity. The western media & human rights organizations are bering taken for a good ride by these Ex LTTE supporters.

    your voice not heard.. tell some new story believable or send some of your crew to Geneva to prove allegations are wrong.

    It is not duped mate. It is rather hired. What can't they do with their billions of dollars in their coffers coming from 80 million Tamil all over the world monthly. Even they collect dollar a month from one individual - just extrapolate the enermous funds they are collecting. They can buy all the NGO's INGO's, UN, UNHCR or what not. You name it - it is all in their payrole.

    HIS SMALL PHOTO AND HIS LIES , THATS ALL WE SEE IN ANY MEDIA :(

    Be fair...... Wednesday, 27 February 2013 02:29 AM

    As a "SRI LANKAN" I hope that the UNHCR keeps their hands off us. During the war, when all those bombs exploded I cant remember any intervention by any organization, for 30 years. Now that the war is over, as the weapons cant be sold, they need to find some damn fault. Sure enough most of us doesnt like the current govt, that doesnt mean that you need to be a traitor as a "SRI LANKAN"

    So if you are so confident why are you afraid of an independent investigation to expose the real culprit?

    You people were always thinking you can outsmart the world.

    The Sri Lankan Gov has duped its people

    Geneva is full of lying through the teeth Tamil refugees. If you trust them you could trust Piribaharan.

    Its been 3 over years and the technical rebuttals by the army of Channel-4 and other images & videos have been few and far between as well as being clumsy. If you want to convince people, you have to do a thorough technical rebuttal.

    It is very sad. We had time and opportunity to nip the protruding nail. We ignored and NOW it has come to the amputation of the finger!

    Everyone is not like your clan. I mean behind money.

    Namal Perera Tuesday, 26 February 2013 02:48 PM

    For the LTTE Groups to be successful the Jokers of the corrupt, lawless Banana Republic must be doing something terribly wrong. Unfortunately these stupid Jokers do not understand what they are doing.

    Seriously Tuesday, 26 February 2013 07:56 AM

    Why leave so much space for them to do so?

    DeSelva Tuesday, 26 February 2013 07:54 AM

    LTTE rump? not halal certified I guess?

    anura gunawardane Tuesday, 26 February 2013 08:00 AM

    Dear Sir,
    What makes the international community believe LTTE terrorist rump but the not the Goverment of Sri Lanka. You have to think abou it first

    Sammy Tuesday, 26 February 2013 03:05 PM

    If these photos are fake then why not take some positive steps to prove the detractors wrong.

    Kabul Tuesday, 26 February 2013 03:12 PM

    You mean the LTTE rump? Laugh Laugh.......

    lalitha Tuesday, 26 February 2013 08:10 AM

    what about the government deceiving its own ppl?

    unchikun Tuesday, 26 February 2013 08:10 AM

    Ha, so what you say is Sri Lanka diplomacy has failed, and it has. One main cause is appointing ex military to diplomatic posting . Good you have realized it at least now.

    appo Tuesday, 26 February 2013 03:39 PM

    Ever thought that anyone believes you?

    Tissa Withana Tuesday, 26 February 2013 03:40 PM

    Sri lanka did not even try to outsmart the world. Sri lankan people are too inocent. That were the problem. But they learn very fast. LTTE diaspora can fool the media and the world with their terrorist collected money. But how long it will be work?

    manusya Tuesday, 26 February 2013 08:20 AM

    If it is the case, what is needed is a counter strategy with a clearly defined action plan and not lip services like this.

    Brigadier I don't think anyone believes any of the evidence is 'beyond reasonable doubt' but that it is credible evidence which should be intensively investigated by non partisan institutions, which given your comments you are clearly not. ... the so called 'international community' is made up of people in Sri Lankan, and elsewhere, who believe in democracy, justice and accountability. It is not easy to see that either the sri Lankan government or its military institutions share those values. Prove us wrong by being totally open and allowing a independent international investigation into alleged war crimes. via DM Android App

    tell something new ..

    Banda Tuesday, 26 February 2013 08:50 AM

    Are you in the Army or in the Parliment, This is a matter for th Govt to take up not the Army. Your comments only raise concerns as you are trying to cover up.

    sellam Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:13 PM

    That is why the government did not allow foreign reporters and observers to the war zone. If the government is not truthful towards its citizens, it is not a desired one.

    sayed Tuesday, 26 February 2013 08:51 AM

    dont try to fool international lets do it in Sri Lanka.
