Commenting on the evidence of the execution of Vellupillai Prabhakaran's son Balachandran, the former commander of the army has said that the army had "no information" as to the whereabouts of Prabhakaran's family.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Fonseka said:
"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”
“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”
