My name used by foreign job racketeers - Minister

Labour and Foreign Employment Minister Manusha Nanayakkara emphasized that a special investigation regarding the racket where persons collect money promising to provide foreign jobs by claiming to be officers of his personal staff is being carried out and that he is not responsible for any deal or promise made with such people.

The minister stated that no officer of his staff collects money to provide foreign jobs, and no one other than a legal foreign employment agency has the ability to refer people for foreign jobs. Only the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment and legal foreign employment agencies refer workers for foreign jobs. Apart from that, no other person can send workers abroad for foreign jobs, and it is illegal to receive money by saying that foreign jobs will be provided.

None of the persons accused of taking money for jobs claiming to be in the minister’s staff are from the minister’s personal staff, he said.
