The government supplied Channel 4 journalists with the information they needed to create another film on Sri Lanka, UNP MP Lakshman Kiriella stated.

 

Speaking at a press conference held today (November 20) in Colombo, he said that after granting the Channel 4 team visas to enter the country, the government then restricted them.

 

The MP stated that the government was making promises to the international community similar to the manner in which it makes promises to the public.

 

He added that Sri Lanka had not benefitted at all through the recently concluded Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) while claiming that this years CHOGM had the lowest heads of state turnout ever.

 

Kiriella highlighted that members of the government had opposed the decision to hold CHOGM in Sri Lanka and stated that the government had allegedly spent Rs.15 billion.

 

He also criticised the government for being inconsistent with its view on the international community.
