Relief for 3000 Lankans due to Lebanon amnesty

Jul 23, 2010 3:29:27 AM - itnnews.lk

3000 Sri Lankans have received relief following the amnesty granted by the Lebanese Government. Lebanon decided to grant the three month amnesty for migrants who were residing there unable to leave for their home countries due to various causes.

This amnesty was granted as a result of a discussion the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Lebanon M. Mahroof and several diplomats of some South Asian countries had with the Internal Affairs Minister of Lebanon. Special relief was granted to about 3000 Sri Lankans who remained at detention houses under the Lebanese Embassies and those who were in Government detention houses and remand prison.
