The Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE) has cracked down on three illegal foreign employment agencies in Maradana.
The operation carried out by the special investigations unit at the Bureau had taken action against three foreign employment agencies at the Fountain Plaza at Maradana. The three agencies according to the SLBFE are Avish Manpower, MF Agency and Rose Asian Tours and Travels.
During the raid on these agencies the SLBFE has recovered 122 passports and false documents that had been prepared by the agencies to be given to their clients, who are hopeful of receiving employment overseas.
Officials of the agencies were arrested by the Maradana Police and were produced before the Maligakanda Magistrate. They were granted a Rs. 200,000 bail.
The case is to be taken up on October 25.
