British Channel 4’s documentary Sri Lanka: The Killing Fields was screened in the New Zealand parliament Tuesday for members of the parliament and staff of the political parties. Green Party MP Keith Locke, Labour Party MP Maryan Street and National Party MP Jackie Blue were co-sponsors of the show. The Sri Lanka High Commission and some supporters in the Sri Lankan community in New Zealand tried to stop the screening without success.

MPs and staff from four parties attended the show. They included Mana Party leader Hone Harawira and Green Party co-leader Russel Norman.

Green MP Keith Locke said the audience left the screening silent and stunned by the horrific scenes in the film.

There was a feeling among those present that something to be done to bring those responsible to account, news sources in New Zealand said.
