SYNOPSIS
Keenie Meenie Services - the most powerful mercenary company you've never heard of - was involved in war crimes in Sri Lanka for which its shadowy directors have never been held accountable.


Now an explosive new film exposes the extent of these war crimes. Following investigative journalist Phil Miller as he uncovers secret diplomatic cables, and meets insiders who reveal the British government's support for Keenie Meenie and the continuing cover-up.


Keenie Meenie provides long overdue evidence on the crimes of the people who make a killing from killing.
