* Sri Lanka cabinet nod to appoint a committee to recommend measures for employees affected by liquidation of RALL
Wed, Mar 15, 2017, 11:16 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Cabinet of Ministers in December 2016 approved the liquidation of state-owned security service provider Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Ltd (RALL) and assign its maritime security to Sri Lanka Navy and its land base security to Civil Security Department.

Following the decision to liquidate, the government has taken measures to ensure the job security of the employees of the RALL who would be displaced when its services are assigned to security forces.

Accordingly, President Maithripala Sirisena, in his capacity as the Minister of Defense has proposed appointing a Committee of senior officials to make suitable proposals to ensure the job security of RALL employees.

The Committee will be tasked to study the liabilities and responsibilities and responsibility on public finance, and to make recommendations on attaching employees of RALL to LRDC Services Private Ltd of Land Reclamation and Development Corporation for affirming their job security.

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved the President's proposal to appoint the Committee.

Rakna Arakshaka Lanka Limited (RALL) was established during the previous government as a government affiliated service to provide security to special institutions such as economic targets, public institutions, and private institutions.

The company was formed in collaboration with the Ministry of Defense considering the then security status in the country as army officers who provided such security had to be deployed for maintaining law and order in the country. With the present peaceful situation in the country it has been observed that such a firm is unnecessary.
