Dec 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka government has made arrangements to employ 400 rehabilitated cadres of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) as pre-school teachers.

The new recruits included several civilians and a Christian nun while the majority of them are rehabilitated LTTE cadres who surrendered to the Army at the end of the war. They have been given appointment letters recently.

These pre-school teachers are to be put in service in Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu districts.

They have been employed under the Civil Defence Force but assigned to teach in the pre-schools.

The pre-school development programme, a concept of parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa, is conducted by the Director General of Civil Defence Force Rear Admiral Ananda Peiris under the guidance of the Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
