Sending Sri Lankan workers to Cyprus temporarily suspended

Thursday, 04 April 2013 - 19:05


The Ministry of Foreign Employment stated that sending workers to Cyprus has been temporarily suspended due to the current economic crisis in that country.


Objections have been raised in many quarters over the sending of workers to Cyprus in view of their current situation.


Several parties argued that Lankan workers will be stranded in the country with such a high level of unemployment.


However, Minister of Foreign Employment earlier stated that the Foreign Employment Bureau would continue to meet the demand for Lankan workers in Cyprus as the economic crisis within the country would not affect foreign workers.


The Ministry has now decided to temporarily suspend sending workers to Cyprus.
