Time Out: "Tonight's gruelling film, anchored by Jon Snow, displays C4 journalism at its bold, devastating best, positing exceptionally convincing - and often necessary graphic - evidence of war crimes on both sides as the Sri Lankan govt crushed the remainder of the Tamil resistance."
Radio Times: "The reportage is forensic, but also about as horrific as TV can get. It's painful to watch but it raises serious questions about the Sri Lankan's government's version of events and about the consequences if the UN fails to pursue the evidence."
The Guardian: “If you're the Sri Lankan government, then you probably want ‘Sri Lanka's Killing Fields’ to go away. .... Channel 4 also looked as if it rather wanted this film to go away as it buried it in a late-night slot, long after most people have gone to bed. The stated reason for this was that some of the scenes were so graphic and distressing they might upset viewers. But this was precisely the reason it should have been given primetime billing.”
Army camps built on land that has been reportedly released by the Sri Lankan government has left displaced Tamils unable to resettle in their native villages, said Tamil National Alliance (TNA) spokesperson and MP Suresh Premachandran.
The State Finance Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said the full implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Sri Lankan constitution was unrealistic and India could not compel the government to implement it.
