UK Channel-4 News has announced that it will unveil shocking revelations about the 2019 Easter bombings in its latest programme titled “Sri Lanka’s Easter Bombings – Dispatches” to be broadcast tomorrow (5), what it says, ‘allege complicity by officials inside the government’.

“Shocking new revelations about Sri Lanka's deadly Easter bombings of 2019, as high-placed whistle-blowers allege complicity by officials inside the government,” it stated.

Informed sources said that the primary source of the programme is the former spokesperson of Pillayan, who is currently living in Geneva, Switzerland seeking asylum. He was the media spokesperson and finance secretary of Sivaneshthurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan group.

Sources also said that Channel 4 had planned to broadcast this video on August 15, but had stopped broadcasting the video on that day following a clarification given to Channel 4 by the Chief of State Intelligence Service (SIS), Major General Suresh Salley through his lawyers about the allegations levelled against him in the video.

It is also reported that Major General Suresh Salley has informed Channel 4 with documents confirming that he was not on duty in Sri Lanka during the period related to the incidents that Azad Maulana made using his name.

However, it is reported that after Major General Suresh Salley’s response, Channel-4 had reportedly changed the title of the video and scheduled to broadcast it tomorrow.

Channel 4 previously aired a documentary video titled Sri Lanka's Killing Fields, a hard-hitting investigation into the final weeks of the Sri Lankan civil war.

    Srilankan Civil war ..?? Was it not the final weeks of War against Terrorists ??

    Be Fair Monday, 04 September 2023 08:46 AM

    Well, Channel 4 doesn't need to air a Programme to tell us what happened that fateful day.

    Jude Monday, 04 September 2023 08:52 AM

    People who's Responsible for Easter Sunday bombing roaming freely. Unless Channel 4 can arrest The culprits nothing much gonna change, yeah.

    Chamara Monday, 04 September 2023 08:53 AM

    Bring the the truth out and punish them all. And they are the reason for us to fly off from our mother land.

    Gota and people in the Sri Lankan government helped the USA. In every country, these are traitors. After the bombing, they were able to install him as the new president. The USA knew that, after a terrorist attack like this, the majority would blindly vote for him because he was also able to end the war. The biggest reason to have Gota as their puppet was to push vaccines and destroy the Sri Lankan economy. In Africa, in Niger, they also had a puppet leader who was recently removed by the military. Depopulation has always been the highest priority for the US government,.

    Guess we would finally figure out what the 6.9 million who wanted to ‘save the country’ finally got! Ha ha - still remember that woman in a purple skirt and flowery top on news clips. She was willing to ‘starve’ for the sake of ‘national security’! Trust she has lost weight by now?

    cloy Monday, 04 September 2023 09:15 AM

    If its channel 4, we can imagine what is there inside! Fake fake fake and more fake. Nothing much!

    MirakRajBanda Monday, 04 September 2023 09:28 AM

    Channel 4 going to reveal the names who perpetrated the attack for political gains which we all know- Gotabya Rajapakse who is living underdog in suburbs of Colombo. Two renowned terrorists were on his payroll- one was Galabada Athe Thero and the other was Zahran Hashim. Tomorrow the names will be revealed and the rest will be history!!!!

    Lokka Monday, 04 September 2023 09:29 AM

    Why not those who allege these crimes took place in accordance with the way they report, come to Sri Lanka and give evidence in a court of law.

    Dakuneyaka Monday, 04 September 2023 10:14 AM

    When is Channel 4 going to air a documentary of the human rights violations by the UK on a world wide basis.? Heal thyself first without your Pontificating to others. Where is Jon Snow with his lies ?

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 04 September 2023 10:15 AM

    Thank you Channel 4 for this bold civil service that no TV Channel in Sri Lanka will dare investigate and reveal because they are a load of cowards. This also reveals, our Armed Forces have been used historically for never for the purpose of protecting the integrity and sovereignty of the nation but for doing Dobi work for Politicians and killing her own civilians in the pretext of labelling them Terrorists.

    Anybody can tell any lies.

    Drooling for the Truth Monday, 04 September 2023 04:34 PM

    If RW calls himself a genuine statesman, he could have revealed the truth of the Easter bombings and jailed the culprits behind this heinous attack. Instead he has paved the way for an international channel to unveil shocking revelations of the attack. This clearly goes on to show that RW is covering up all the Rajafaksha’s sins.

    More about then Suresh Salley and what were his failings then Monday, 04 September 2023 04:40 PM

    Seems the Suresh Salley with the title of Major General is mentioned a lot in the video. Even if Sri Lanka since independence has done everything wrong for the people, at least the former colonial masters the British can be trusted to find out the truth. It was lot harder to trick the Portuguese about the road to Kotte, and the British are no different. Doesn't matter how much religion is used to stifle the truth about sacredness, they'd know tricks and deceit as easily as other people from democratic countries.

    If people say there were no war atrocities, they are deaf and blind. Same way if people say that there eere no government hand in easter bombing theyvare mentally retarded. Thank you Channel 4.

    It was a foregone conclusion that the infamous nepotism clan had used one of their army acolyte to create a nightmare on defence among the electorate to make way for the ex-ruler-cum conman to come to power and only now it has been proved.
