It was there that Victim No 1, or V01, met other children in the same straits: two young girls referred to in the UN report as “V02” and “V03,” and a young boy, “V08.” In August 2007, the UN received complaints of “suspicious interactions” between Sri Lankan soldiers and the Haitian children.V02, who was 16 when the UN team interviewed her, told them she had sex with a Sri Lankan commander at least three times, describing him as overweight with a moustache and a gold ring.Reciprocating the sentiments expressed by the High Commissioner, Chief Minister Chandy invited Sri Lanka to participate at the highest possible level in the ‘Emerging Kerala 2012’ Conference cum Trade and Investment Promotion event scheduled to be held in September 2012 in Kochi.The High Commissioner attended a dinner hosted in his honour by the Minister of Home Affairs of the State of Kerala, Thiruvanahoor Radhakrishnan, at which all senior officials of the Home Ministry and Internal Security were present.The Haitian girl known Victim No 1 was 12 when she first had sex with a Sri Lankan peacekeeper. The boy, known as Victim No 9, was 15 when his ordeal began.Over the course of three years, he said he had sex with more than 100 Sri Lankan peacekeepers, averaging about four a day.
More than 300 of the allegations involved children, but only a fraction of the alleged perpetrators were jailed.
