to Tamilnet.com, the LTTE chief Prabhakaran
is ‘alive and safe’. The
announcement was given on the website
without disclosing his whereabouts.
The page read, “I wish to inform
the Global Tamil community distressed
witnessing the final events of the
war that our beloved leader Velupillai
Prabhakaran is alive and safe. He
(Prabhakaran) will continue to lead
the quest for dignity and freedom
for the Tamil people,” stated
LTTE’s International Relations
head S Badhmanathan.
Meanwhile, forensic scientist P Chandra
Sekharan has stated that establishing
the identity of the slain LTTE chief
through DNA analysis is not easy.
The Sri Lankan Army should either
be in possession of the DNA sample
or a sample needs to be got from Prabhakaran’s
parents or siblings.
