Minister of Labour, Nimal Siripala De Silva, today offered a possible ray of hope for Sri Lanka’s expatriate workers, who have been stranded overseas without the means to return home.

The minister announced that directives have been issued to the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment, to dip into the significant funds it holds in fixed deposit accounts to pay for repatriation air tickets.
