Instructions from the Minister to take strict action against the institution that sent Sri Lankans to the Ukraine war

The Foreign Employment Bureau said in a statement that the owner and manager of a licensed foreign employment agency that sent Sri Lankans to serve in the Russian army have been arrested.

According to the statement issued by the agency, they were arrested yesterday (15th) by the officers of their special investigation department and charged Rs.

Labor and Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara says that the government does not approve of sending Sri Lankans to serve in any army.

The Minister has instructed the officers of the Foreign Employment Bureau to punish those who conduct such smuggling regardless of rank and he requests the public not to use tourist visas for foreign employment.

The agency sent expatriates directly to the war fronts of the Russian-Ukrainian war. The bureau has received 7 complaints regarding this racket, and according to those complaints, the concerned establishment which was run at Stanley Thilakaratne Mawatha in Nugegoda was raided yesterday and two persons who worked as its owner and manager were arrested by the investigating officers.

After recording the statements of the two arrested suspects, they will be presented to the Negombo Magistrate’s Court today (16).
