Dear Editor,

News Report filed by your Reporter, Raveena Aulakh in Today’s Edition of the Toronto Star

Reference has been made to pictures released by UK’s Channel 4 TV suggesting that the 12 year old son, of the leader of the Tamil Tiger terrorist group, namely, Balachandran Prabhakaran, had been taken into custody by Sri Lanka’s Armed Forces and thereafter executed in cold blood by shooting him at close range. 

The picture carried in the newspaper shows the child sitting on several planks of wood which looks like a door of a rural homestead, which the retreating Tamil Tigers took with them along with the roofing sheets of the former homes of the civilian population who were forced to accompany them to be used as a human shield.   The child is seen inside a heavily fortified bunker, which has been put together in a prim and proper manner for someone very important like the LTTE leader or his family members, unlike one constructed by an advancing army on the move waiting to make a final strike to bring the military action to an end.  He seems calm in these surroundings and not overly anxious, eating a cookie or candy.  He like his father is not wearing a cyanide capsule around the neck as mandated for other Tamil Tiger cadres who were required to take their life if captured.

If one were to look at one other picture carried by the Independent of UK (copied below), taken after the child had been killed, you would see two separate feet of onlookers, one of whom is wearing a slipper whilst the other is wearing an ordinary dress shoe unlike Sri Lankan soldiers who are provided with combat boots.  This certainly does leave room to suspect the Tamil Tigers of having carried out the gruesome killing of the child to prevent his capture by the Sri Lankan forces as instructed by his megalo-maniacal father who led the terror group.  The candy or cookie given to the child may have been spliced with a substance to sedate him before the horrible act of killing took place.  This murder cannot be put beyond the work of the Tamil Tigers, as they have previously not given any care or thought when they snatched suckling infants from the arms of Sinhalese mothers and dashed their heads on rocks or trees, as they wanted to instill horrific fear in the hearts of these rural residents whom they attacked to drive them from the land and ethnically cleanse the area to set up their mono-ethnic separate state of “Eelam” in the north and east of Sri Lanka.  Human Rights Watch or any one of the other international rights groups such as AI, ICG, ICJ, etc. were notable by their silence.

We certainly cannot rush to conclusions because the Tamil Tigers have a track record of distorting the truth to blame the Sri Lankan authorities, as there definitely is more to it than meets the eye.

Yours truly,

Mahinda Gunasekera
