LTTE says no more underage cadres in Batti-Amparai

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 14 April 2004, 16:46 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers said Wednesday that they have released all underage (under 18) cadres in the Batticaloa-Amparai districts to their parents, including all those the UNICEF had reported in its list as under-aged recruits.

Under a previous agreement between the Tamils Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) and the UNICEF, titled “Addressing needs of children affected by war,” each child would receive follow-up visits by social workers to ensure that their immediate needs were addressed within their home communities. This was designed to prevent the children from wanting to rejoin the LTTE and bring normality to their lives.

The LTTE has said that if in the future any underage recruits were found among its cadres, they would be handed over to their parents via the UNICEF with the assistance of the TRO.
