Ensure safety of Lankan expats – Herath
State Minister Kanaka Herath emphasised the importance of taking additional steps to ensure the safety of Sri Lankan migrant workers.
He said the Foreign Ministry, Foreign Employment Ministry, and other relevant institutions should collaborate to prevent any harm to Sri Lankans living abroad. The State Minister was speaking about the recent brutal assassination of a Sri Lankan in Pakistan.
He said so while attending a recent ceremony to kick off the construction of a new building for a training centre at the Kegalle Technical Exchange Centre under the Advisory Services Department of the Sri Lanka Rubber Research Institute.
This project will cost Rs 3 million to complete. The new structure will be used to provide training and technical services to rubber smallholders, medium and large scale companies, and cultivators in the districts of Kegalle, Matale, Kandy, and Kurunegala.
The State Minister also said the Government will request from the Pakistani Government that each and every suspect involved in this crime be brought to justice to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
