    I suggest the government should train and send them abroad as security personnel. This will help Lanka to earn foreign exchange, reduce unemployment, at the same time enhance their living standards.

    Nice thoughts.. YES use the sleeping Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau to strike up deals with other countries than be..lame ducks and drawing salaries. These officers who have basicor even better training could be put to use to further their economic standards than be used as slaves of the past regime...
