Prisons Department Advertises For Post Of Executioner: Candidate Should Have Six Subjects At O/Level With Two Credit Passes

February 12, 2019

The Department of Prisons has advertised to hire an executioner for 201p as the President has already declared his plans to impose death sentence to drug offenders. 

According to the advertisement, the executioner should have six subjects at the Ordinary Level examination with at least two credit passes. 

It also says that being convicted in a court of law regarding any offence would be deemed a disqualification. 

Speaking in Parliament last week, President Maithripala Sirisena said death penalty would be imposed on drug convicts in a month or two. 

He said he would proceed with his plan irrespective of the mounting opposition to the move from the human rights circles.
