Sri Lanka stands out as the only country in the world where babies, as young as eight months old, have enforcedly disappeared by a Government. All these babies are from the Tamil ethnic group.
Several of these Tamil babies enforcedly disappeared when their parents surrendered along with their babies to the Sri Lankan Security forces at the end of the war ten years ago in May 2009.
Some babies also disappeared when their parents were abducted along with their babies by the Sri Lankan Security Forces.
There are several eye witnesses for the surrender and the abduction of these babies.
Despite numerous appeals to the President and the Prime Minister, Sri Lankan government is refusing to give any details of these enforcedly disappeared Tamil babies.
Even though numerous Tamil babies have enforcedly disappeared, in this Booklet we are bringing the details of twenty nine (29) Tamil babies and young children, who were enforcedly disappeared. This includes photos, names, and age of the babies at the time of enforcedly disappeared.
