This is an excellent work by the Channel4 team, I am really proud of what Jonathan Miller has done, this program will bring out the heinous crimes committed by the Srilankan state and will stop these in future similar thing happening anywhere else.

What the government ministers were saying, zero civilian casuality( Mahinda Samarasinghe)

only 5000 were in no fire zone( Mahinda Rajapakse), only 70000 but we have provided food( Keheliya Rambukwela)

In the end 300000 behind the barbed wire fence.

Lies,lies and more lies. Why do you have to lie? Are you not ashamed of lying?
