Two years ago, a university report revealed that Swiss couples adopted 881 children from Sri Lanka up until the 1990s. Mediated by child traffickers who took their children away from mothers and operated so-called “baby farms” where children were systematically fathered and birth certificates forged. The Swiss authorities knew everything and looked the other way.

Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter (58) expressed her regret at the time and promised that the federal government and the cantons would support those affected in their search for origin. Now she has explained to the media what this should look like: the federal government and the cantons are financing a three-year pilot project for the organization Back to the Roots (BttR) for those affected. With a maximum of 250,000 francs.
