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

This documentary has done an excellent job defying extreme efforts by the Sri Lanka government to suppress the truth from coming out. I know at times the producers have received death threats from the same Government. But with all this they had the courage to bring this film out.
This film has triggered the international war crimes investigation against Sri Lanka by the UNHRC. Hopefully this film will also serve as evidence in the investigation and help bring the culprits in front of the Law and serve Justice to the victims of this indigestable truth.
Although viewer discretion is advised, everyone who stands up for Human Rights must watch this Documentary.
