Mar 19, Colombo: The Ministry of Justice and Prison Reforms says that the interviews for the post of executioner will be held on March 27 and 28.
The interviews will be held at the Department of Prisons for 79 applicants.
A total of 102 people including an American and two women have applied for the two positions of hangmen. The American's application has been rejected since he is not a citizen and the two women have been rejected since only males were considered for the job.
Out of the 79 applicants, two suitable persons will be selected for the post of hangman.
The two eligible persons for the post of executioner will be employed at the Welikada Prison, the Ministry of Justice and Prison Reforms said.
