By Amila Abeyratne
The UNHRC was believing a doctored video released by British TV station Channel 4 alleging that Sri Lankan Security Forces committed war crimes during the final phase of the country’s civil war waged against the LTTE, Prof. Prathiba Mahanamahewa, former Head of the Human Rights Commission for Sri Lanka (HRCSL) stated.
He insisted that there was no evidence to level charges against the Sri Lankan Security Forces for committing war crimes during the country’s protracted war against the LTTE. He made these comments while testifying before the PCol to review decisions made in this regard as well as future measures to be taken.
