Weekly News Roundup… Child soldiers held by TMVP in Sri Lanka to be released…

Chief Minister Chandrakanthan of Sri Lanka has pledged that the “child soldier issue” relating to the children being held by the Thamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikai (TMVP) Party will be “concluded in the next three months.”  According to the minister, the TMVP party has already handed over the children to their parents and relatives.  However, UNICEF still accuses the party of still holding upwards of 100 children in its ranks.

In addition to opening three offices to deal with finding, rehabilitating and returning the children to their families, Sri Lanka is publicizing the plight of child soldiers in their new campaign “Bring Back the Child“.  The program “targets armed groups, vulnerable communities, and the children affected.”
