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.

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.
