Prison Officers to get increments
By Kumudu Upul Shantha
Attention has been drawn towards granting salary increments to Prisons Department Officers, by Justice Minister Ali Sabry and State Minister of Prison Reforms Lohan Ratwatte. This is due to the often risky and dangerous assignments being undertaken by them.
A discussion in this regard had been held at the Justice Ministry last morning (4), and the decisions taken at it are due to be submitted to the salaries Commission.
The two Ministers had taken this decision to increase the salaries of these officials, following repeated requests made by the Prisons Department to sort out their salary anomalies and to increase their salaries, considering the difficult tasks performed by them in the line of duty, compared to other Departments.
