Accused Depot Superintendent to be investigated by a Commission

The Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission circles said that the SLHR Commission has asked the Secretary to the Ministry of Transport to investigate the Depot Superintendent of the SLTB’s Jaffna Depot.

Last month an attention drawing protest was held by combined UNP-SLFP-TNA unions leveling charges of taking unilateral adhoc decisions, disorders in payment of wages, allowing people to work under the influence of liquor, unauthorized deductions from wages etc.

Further, although, the said Superintendent was found guilty in 3 inquiries earlier , no action was taken against him said the unions.

Following the above unions complaining to the SLHRC, the commission had given the above order.
