Jordanian police fired tear gas at Sri Lankan garment workers, after the workers threw stones damaging a police vehicle and injuring police officers following a dispute at the garment factory.


The Sri Lankan workers had demanded that their employer removes a Sri Lankan supervisor at the factory and provides them with accommodation. The factory had agreed to the demands after several meetings with the workers. When the employer tried to convey the acceptance of the demands, stones were thrown at the police officers escorting the garment officials, and the Jordanian police had then fired tear gas, Kingsley Ranawaka, Chairman of the Foreign Employment Bureau told Daily Mirror online.

The Sri Lankan embassy officials are also in discussions with the workers and trying to resolve the matter, Ranawaka added.

    Sri Lankans have been working in these countries for many years and they know the law and regulation well, why suddenly everything is turning against SL.

    rd Sunday, 10 October 2010 11:44 AM

    It appears, we have this in our blood and now its time to export it.

    rd Sunday, 10 October 2010 11:45 AM

    Its time to export our culture abroad.

    Bakamoona Sunday, 10 October 2010 11:59 AM

    Typical Sri Lankans ! Keep it up.

    Anver Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:08 PM

    We shouldn' t comment without knowing actually what happened. We know some of our workers really undergo much hardships and harassments in foreign countries.

    Oyage sudu kella Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:10 PM

    ela ela.

    sw Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:19 PM

    We export our girls for slavery and squander the foreign exchange they send here on ego trips.

    sam Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:36 PM

    Josh Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:41 PM

    Riz Sunday, 10 October 2010 01:39 PM

    We cannot just say things here. People who work abroad have to go through lot of troubles.

    Munas Sunday, 10 October 2010 02:14 PM

    prove to the world that we are Sri Lankans.

    rosh Sunday, 10 October 2010 06:14 PM

    Well, we need to sit back and take stock. Saudi is about to stop sri-lankan workers and now this. Wont be surprised if Jordan too stops workers from Sri-Lanka. Do we forget that there are rules and regulation in other countries that we need to follow just like when foreigners come to SL they are expected to follow our rules. T. G. they didn't round the stone throwers and file charges.

    Yuri Sunday, 10 October 2010 08:12 PM

    Saudi OUT, Jordan OUT what is next, these people bring more shame then Money to country. Are the SInhala Sri Lankan ?

    sunilp Sunday, 10 October 2010 08:13 PM

    We are the best fighters & stone throwers. Do show Jordanians
    what we do daily in Sri Lanka !

    Sarath Sunday, 10 October 2010 09:37 PM

    You are Correct
