Thirty ex-combatants who successfully completed their rehabilitation and vocational training were given appointments in the technical service attached to the Sri Lanka Transport Board depots in Jaffna, Vavuniya, Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu in the North.

The appointments were given during a ceremony held under the patronage of Parliamentarian and the Tharunyata Hetak Organization Chairman Namal Rajapaksa at the Kilinochchi District Secretariat recently.

Meanwhile, several ex-LTTE combatants, who successfully completed their rehabilitation programs have already been recruited as drivers to the SLTBs Kondavil bus Depot in Jaffna.
