We don’t know exactly when it was filmed – but it was at some point in the last two or three years of the war.

It was filmed by a soldier on a mobile phone and its shows Sinhala-speaking soldiers – their uniforms suggest they may be special forces – who are laughing and cheering, as they celebrate the deaths of the Tiger fighters and perform acts of grotesque sexual violation on the bodies.

A pattern of systematic use of violence and executions.

A pattern which – in an army as disciplined and effective as the Sri Lankan one – suggests that command responsibility for these actions can be traced to the very top.

Hopes were raised still further when David Cameron made a clear commitment during the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting last November.

He said then: “Let me be very clear, if that investigation is not completed by March then I will use our position on the UN human rights council to work with the UN human rights commissioner and call for a full credible and independent international inquiry.” But then the draft text of a resolution – apparently agreed by the British amongst others, and to be discussed by the HRC at the end of this month – was leaked last week.

The Sri Lankan government has responded by claiming the footage is, variously, doctored, manipulated or acted by Tamil Tigers dressed as government soldiers and speaking Sinhala, the language of the vast majority of government soldiers.To the surprise of many observers, and despite David Cameron’s deadline, the resolution does not call – in so many words – for the setting up of an international Commission of Inquiry from this meeting of the UN Human Rights Council.It repeats the call made in various forms at HRC meetings over the past two years on Sri Lanka to conduct its own adequate inquiry.But the Rajapaksa regime has responded with endless delays – accompanied by increasing repression of the Tamils in the north and east – and a continuing clamp down on any other dissent elsewhere in the country.But human rights activists and Tamil organisations had high hopes that after three years of discussions – and following a recommendation from the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay – the council would finally vote this month for the creation of a genuine independent international commission of inquiry.
