12 Year Old Sri Lankan Boy Executed

12 YEAR OLD SRI LANKAN BOY EXECUTED – It is almost impossible to believe that someone would execute a 12 year old boy just because his father was the Rebel Leader of the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka.

WARNING: THE IMAGES BELOW ARE EXTREMELY GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING

The photographs below are of Balachandran Prabhakaran, the son of Velupillai Prabhakaran, the head of the Rebel Tamil Tigers.

From the photographs it is clear to see that young Balachandran has been captured, by what is reported as Government troops.  He is seen with a blanket around his shoulders and eating what appears to be a snack.

Balachandran’s face depicts and image of childhood innocence that cannot fully comprehend the conflict that raged in Sri Lanka.  For Balachandran this was to be his last meal and moments later his body riddled with bullet holes.

You have to ask yourself; what type of human being could do this to a young child?  Why, in this so-called age of enlightenment and human understanding does this type of atrocity take place?

Once again I warn you these pictures are disturbing and are featured in the documentary ‘No Fire Zone’ and show the body of Balachandran riddled with bullets to the chest.

It has always been the stance of the Sri Lankan Government that Balachandran was kill in a cross fire of government troops and Tamil tigers however these newly released photographs clear rule out the Governments scenario of events.

“The fact that the boy’s dead body was photographed is also alarming. ‘That these events were also photographed and kept as war trophies by the perpetrators is even more disturbing.” Mr Macrae, No Fire Zone Film Director

Regardless of the photographs and apparent evidence a spokesman for the Sri Lanka Army, Brigadier PR Wangigasooriya has stated that these are lies and rumours designed to discredit the Government of Sri Lanka and that these furthermore provide as no evidence or proof that Government Troops had carried out, or indeed engage, in the execution of the Tamil Rebels

It is estimated that over 40,000 people died in the final months of the war and yet to date no government or army official has been held accountable for what many feel was an act of genocide.
