The LTTE committed many serious war crimes during the Eelam wars. Here are some of them. To start with, there are prohibitions regarding recruitment into an army. The Optional Protocol on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict forbids the enlistment of anyone under the age of 18 into the armed forces. According to the UN, the LTTE recruited 6,905 children. They were forcibly taken away from their families and placed in the front line. A large number died in battle. Child soldiers rescued by the army refused to go back to their families. "They can't recognize their parents. Some don't even know their names," the army said. Written by A Sri Lankan

Are you for Real "Callum Macrae"
2 March 2014 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

I'm guessing you are getting so much happy by publishing this "Documentary". Am I wrong ? Do you think you are some kind of a GOD, I don't think so, any human with a brain can figure out this was a made-up movie because in some parts you really forgot to edit your mistakes. So when are you get paid to do something do it properly. And you came to the Sri Lankan soil and do this kind of cruelties, think man You even don't know what's happening every day around the word . Just look at Palestine , Afghanistan , Pakistan , Iraq even in USA there is huge human violations but your cameras are only on he innocent countries like ourselves. I forbid this documentary over & over again !!!

Finally I wont to tell something to #alaveddi , #rathismail , #Rajarajan S , #Tasha Manoranjan ; are really ? It's your right to review so as mine but please don't . 'Cause just look back @ your country & see what have done then after you will realize the real ugly truth about yourselves.
