Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka speaking to Daily Mirror online said the Army had “no information” about the deaths of slain LTTE leader V. Prabhakarans, “ wife, daughter and youngest son”.

“After the final battle which went on from 2009 May 17 night, 18 and 19th till about 10 o clock, we only recovered Prabakharans body together with about 400 other terrorist dead bodies, and his elder son’s body, his elder son Charles Anthony. These two bodies were personally identified by the present member, I think, of the cabinet Karuna Amman, who was the LTTE military wing leader at the time before he joined the government. He himself went and identified these two bodies” he said.



Speaking further Fonseka who led the Army to a decisive victory against the separatist LTTE, said the Army “did not have clue about the presence or whereabouts of” the rest of Prabhakarans family.

“Other than that the Army had no information, never had any positions of Prabhakrans wife, daughter and the youngest son. We did not have clue about their presence or the whereabouts, whether they were in the country or they died during the war, we didn’t have any information about them” said.

Fonseka in reference to the latest ‘pictures’ revealed by Channel 4, which are alleged to have been taken while the youngest son of the LTTE supremo Balachandran was in Army custody, reiterated that the Army had no knowledge or information about the youngest son.


“About these pictures I don’t know, we had no knowledge about this youngest sons whereabouts when I was the Army commander during my time and I can give the assurance that the Army had no information of his youngest son” he said. ( H.F)

    WHEN SF WAS CHECKMATED IN HIS OWN HQ IN COLOMBO BY A MERE EXPECTANT WOMAN WHO BLASTED HERSELF AND HIS OUTRIDER BODY GUARDS HE SHOULD HAVE RESIGNED HIS COMMISSION, & NOT ACCEPTED MEDALS AS A WAR HERO, SINCE HE WAS NOT AT THE WAR FRONT. HE WAS THE ARMY COMMANDER AND SECURITY AT HIS OWN HQ WAS BREACHED.

    So he is implying that there were "others" who were part of the offensive apart from the Sri Lankan army? interesting..

    dava Thursday, 21 February 2013 11:24 AM

    If this so called channel 4 talk about human rights, they need to understand the following:
    During the 30 long years, the Tamils & Sinhalese paid the price by life. They died, either by the terror that was created by the LTTE/bombs/or by the army during operations.
    Who of these international orginazions have spoken about the Sinhalese that was killed? All sympathy ends only with the tamils. That's okay if there is a balance. Why do all talk about the Tamils and not Sinhalese? This is discrimination, and why not call for inquaries to bring to justice of the LTTE carders, inclue Karuna / KP and the gang???? This is bias.

    In that case, their were two sections in the army...one commanded by you who were conducting the war and the other section which was conducting criminal work under another higher up....this is what the world is gonna find. Oh gosh this fish is beginning to rot and smell of jadi.

    Grumpy Wednesday, 20 February 2013 06:52 AM

    Dude, we all knew about his family info... including his youngest child. How can you say that you had no information about it! Ordiary civilians know but the top army commander didnt know :p

    Shan Wednesday, 20 February 2013 07:02 AM

    The video of youngest son's dead is going to be released just before the Geneva meeting. So it's better keep quiet sir.

    MountainLion Wednesday, 20 February 2013 06:59 AM

    Max Wednesday, 20 February 2013 07:03 AM

    leave politics a side;

    No body from SL should make a tript to the Haugue. They demolished a terrorist outfit from Sri Lanka who had planted more than ten thousand land mines up north. May be they planted these for excavation work!!!

    The diaspora- let me kindly ask them to go to Sri Lanka and help their brothers and sisters without shouting from their comfort zones.

    Diaspora can show many videos, skethches and other paraphenelia to a illinformed audience. They may get sucked in but let wait and see.

    Ask George Bush to go to the Hauge mate. With the latest revelations that SL took part to flog off a non SL as a suspected terrorist to an unknown destination makes me sick!

    This type of stories are called hatara beeri kathawa. some one did, some one was questioned, some one else replied and some other one got the credit.

    I think this won't work. Anybody can do photoshop work. But these pictures and videos published so far were proven for their originality by the experts.

    Twincle Wednesday, 20 February 2013 11:08 AM

    That is exactly what happened to Prabakaran.
