President Mahinda Rajapaksa said today that there are many allegations against Sri Lanka of committing war crimes which are false and a mechanism has been put in place at the international level to face them.
Addressing an army passing out parade short while ago the President said that although the war is over the humanitarian operations are continuing in the form of development of the country.

One resists a body search (by security personnel) only when you have something you don't want to be found.

Proving of allegations, without any reasonable doubt, is always the responsibility of those who make those allegations.

There are two rules governing the world politics today. Rule 1.- U.S. is always right! Rule 2.- If it is not, by any chance, refer to rule no.1. Now that they have set their minds to teach us a lesson, I won't be surprised if next time the U.S. allege our country of having Weapons of Mass Destruction or Nuclear or biological weapons!

Keerthi, Actually no, only 3 fingers are pointing at them.

Just a waste of time nothing would happen! The hidden agenda is: the govt. should be tried not the LTTErs because they were all dead and gone!

Only Karuna, KP and Pillyan left??

Once you stopdying your hair the TRUE color of your racism will glow like white flags.

I hope that the Govt can prove that these allegations are false.
anthony jones Tuesday, 21 December 2010 06:49 AM
the president states that his troops have behaved themselves but the troops have provided the ammunition to warrant into allegations of war crimes, without making a fuss, let the enquiry panel do their work, the truth will come out. a j.

Time to time the government keeps making expressions contradicting its stand on war cimes giving room to our antagonists to poke their nose.

Behavior doesn't prove that
Chin Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:05 AM
We all know the current allegations are a part of LTTE terrorists well organised worldwide mechanism. Although the LTTE and their open and hidden supporters faced unexpected defeat in Sri Lanka their funding ,links and actions in various bodies still continuing and we who are living in Sri Lanka know how to deal with them. Now it is very clear who supported terrorists destabilize South Asia and they will fail again as they failed in making separate puppet states in SriLanka and in South India . Not only Sri Lankans, all the leaders in Asia are aware of it.
perumal Tuesday, 21 December 2010 01:24 PM
It is a fact that security forces did not commit war cfrimes. But what about LTTE? Why does govt. protect criminals like Karuna, Pilleyan and KP?
Mewan Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:10 AM
To prove whom. Don't you remember how they proved that Iraq has WMD. Can't you see the results of that "Proof". Proof is there in the wikileaks. go and read it.

truth only always win

US and Western countries killed so many innocent civilian when they staged the war against Sadam Husain, and war against Taliban in Afghanistan. We Sri Lankan now living in peace, after erdication of terrorism. We should strongly condemn their interfearance in our country.
janaki Tuesday, 21 December 2010 01:42 PM
Rajapakse wait until they are proved. WE all would love to believe that but the truth must prevail. Let the UN panel investigate and give their report please.
reagan Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:33 AM
Let's look at the other side of the coin.
cracko Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:46 AM
Which mechanism at INTERNATIONAL level? Can repeating a 'lie' several times makes it 'truth'?
Common Man Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:51 AM
Anyone could make allegation for their own reasons. The real truth is people of these areas are enjoying life now & beginning to feel their newfound freedom.
prabath Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:52 AM
As a Sri Lankan we all would like to hear that these allegations are false. But won't it be better if someone else says it, rather than ourselves??? Why don't we allow the so called investigations to go forward and clear our names???
pd Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:56 AM
mr.President we are with u. we know da hidden agenda's of da west. if they finished al quaida wl they call it war crimes? may the good Lord bless you & protect you as he has done always! thank you for giving the christians a christmas to remmember this year! Amen!
Kelby Tuesday, 21 December 2010 02:07 PM
All the democratic countries have observed the behavior of Srilanka. The leaked cables have shows what the western governments really think about the politics in Srilanka. There is no point in MR claims all the allegations are false are absurd. India also knows who is the partner in crime.
keerthi wijesinghe Tuesday, 21 December 2010 07:56 AM
Those who accuse us have fogotten that other four fingers are directed towards them when they direct one to us.
Roshan D W Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:06 AM
Our President will give dignity to all races,religions so that we can be ONE SRI LANKA !!
pon Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:11 AM
MR knows he has to keep the military reassured that none of them will face an international investigation and so he will say what needs to be said. Having said this I wonder if any person on those vedio clips shown on channel 4 can be proved to be from the military. If so, MR is in deep .
Said Hussein Tuesday, 21 December 2010 02:29 PM
The real truth will be exposed very soon.
John Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:13 AM
If there were no war crimes , why should we worry. Let them come and find.
Jaya from Kandy Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:16 AM
Very true @pd... We have a free nation and a X'mas to enjoy with Peace and that freedom cannot be taken away by some pro-LTTE terrorist western nations. We Sri Lankan will stand by our peace and freedom brought by our heroes and we all stand by our Leader President MR... God bless Sri Lanka and her people.... wish all readers a merry and a peaceful X'Mas
TMA Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:23 AM
What proof does wikileaks have?
TMA Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:25 AM
True or false can only B determined by an analysis (investigation on this situation)
mickymicky Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:27 AM
If US destroy Al kaida, will they talk about war crimes?
Alian Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:29 AM
what is there to prove if the Govt has not done anything wrong....
Thas Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:52 AM
MR you can't go on with the same "slogan" everday. The truth will and have to come out one day. Just wait for that day.
dan Tuesday, 21 December 2010 08:57 AM
what is the proof,,, on Wiklieks,,,,, i think we have to understand the traitors in SL also,,
gemba Tuesday, 21 December 2010 03:50 PM
Innocent never run away. Only criminal will run away from investigation. Which category you are fall into?
TPB Tuesday, 21 December 2010 04:27 PM
Sooo the only way to prove that it is the LTTE who is spreading this malicious allegations is to be open and allow any and all organizations to investigate. If we are clean that will put LTYE in their place
Yoda Tuesday, 21 December 2010 09:30 AM
Just because the prez says so, it doesn't make it true. Investigate and then we'll see.
Go-Rilla Tuesday, 21 December 2010 09:44 AM

Thuwan Tuesday, 21 December 2010 09:52 AM
