Probing Darusman: How A Flawed Report Has Become The Gospel Truth For Those Critical of Lanka

The Island.

 

Here is a very interesting analysis in the Sunday Island of Sri Lanka. Not only is Darusman always cited as an official “U.N.” report, but it’s flawed findings have been consistently quoted as the truth by governments, NGOs, and the media (most notably the UK’s Channel 4) in what has become an international witch hunt against Sri Lanka.

Ultimately it is our fault, since we should have seen it coming, and been proactive in addressing it’s claims. Since we are now on the defensive, no amount of real evidence seem to counteract the momentum of mistruths.
