Police to recruit 150 lawyers as CIs
The Ministry of Justice yesterday (11), announced 150 lawyers would be recruited as Chief Inspectors in order to increase the efficiency of the legal service provided to the public by the Police.
During a discussion held at the Justice Ministry premises, Minister Ali Sabry noted the decision was taken on a request made by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
He said knowledge of Tamil Language will be considered as a special ability for the post as it would be useful to communicate with the Tamil speaking public. Also, they should have a fair knowledge of modern technology too, he added.
Ali Sabry added after the Cabinet gives approval, the interviews for the posts would be held. The Attorney General’s Department has already agreed to train the lawyers on the Law and the Police service.
Minister Ali Sabry, Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana, SSP Ruwan Gunasekara and Additional Secretary (Legal) Piyumanthi Peiris participated in the meeting.
