The army says the investigations over the controversial ‘Channel 4’ video on the war in Sri Lanka is still not over.
Since the year 2013 the army has been investigating into the Channel-4 video upon directions given by then government.
“The objective of those investigations is to verify whether those were Army members,” the army said.
The controversial ‘Channel 4’ video, which was part of several videos later released by the British television station, alleged the army was involved in war crimes.
In April 2013 an army court of inquiry had cleared the military over allegations of targeting civilian locations during the final stages of the war.
The army court claimed to have examined senior field commanders and infantry, armory, artillery, intelligence, civil affairs and medical officers who had participated in the war.
Human rights groups had however raised doubts over investigations carried out by the army back then, as the allegations are against the army in relation to some incidents reported during the war. (Colombo Gazette)
