The Army Commander Jagath Jayasuriya said today that the reason behind the film that is to be produced by the Army on the death of Prabhakarans is to provide answers to the questions that have been raised in the new documentary released by Channel 4.
Addressing troops in Vavuniya today the Army Chief “Many people have asked me the question as to why there is such a hurry about a film about Prabhakarans death. In order to clear all doubts that have surfaced in this regard the army decided to produce a documentary that would portray the true picture of what exactly happened during the last stages of the conflict.
The Commander went on to point out that Channel 4 failed to address any issue that was raised in the documentary titled ‘Lies agreed upon’ released by the government. “We have already responded to the fist documentary put out by Channel 4 and we believe we countered them successfully. In the second video Channel 4 has failed to address any of the issues that we raised and therefore its concoction of the truth is clear” he said. (Daily Mirror Online)
