Sri Lanka has been removed from the ‘list of shame’ in UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s annual report on children and armed conflict during 2011.

UN special representative for children and armed conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy speaking on the omission stated that the removal came after Sri Lanka’s successful completion of Security Council-mandated action plans to end the recruitment and use of children.

During the war both the LTTE and the TMVP were in the UN ‘list of shame’.

However with the end of the war and the military defeat of the LTTE as well as the TMVP working with UNICEF to release all child recruits, both the LTTE and TMVP were no more on the list.
