US Senators to watch C4 documentary today

Several international human rights organizations are planning a screening of the controversial Channel 4 documentary “Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields” at Washington D.C today (July 15) for US policy makers, Senators and Congressmen.

An elaborate arrangement has been made to view and discuss the documentary, first aired in British television in June.

The film was recently screened at the United Nations in New York and Geneva, and has fueled calls for an international probe.

U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern, Co-Chair of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, will give introductory remarks before the film screening.

After the film, panelists will discuss ongoing efforts to further accountability in Sri Lanka, including the findings of the recent U.N. Panel of Experts report on alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, and the U.S. response to these developments, TruthDive reported.
