10 years on no justice for parents of disappeared children

Tuesday October 01, 2019

As the world marks International Children's Day today, the parents of Tamil children made to disappear by the Sri Lankan state have held vigils demanding international justice.

 

The vigils were held in Vavuniya and Batticaloa.

 

Hundreds of Tamil teenagers arrested by the Sri Lankan security forces at the end of the armed conflict in Mullivaikal remain missing. Many more who were arrested or abducted in other parts of the Tamil homeland during various time periods of the armed conflict also remain missing.
