Ex-LTTE Cadres Receive Jobs

Jun 22, 2010 8:48:02 AM - thesundayleader.lk

A group of as many as 400 female ex-LTTE cadres found work yesterday at the Tri-Star Apparel Factory in Alawwa.

The female ex-combatants had spent the last year in government sponsored rehabilitation,  at the Vavuniya Weppamkulam and Punthottam Centers.

Tri-Star Apparel Chairman, Deshabandu Kumar Dewapura said that in total, 1200 female ex-combatants had been employed by his company.

He said that it was as much as anyone in the business community in Sri Lanka could or should do, in support of the governments efforts to rehabilitate ex-combatants and give them a new lease on life.
