The Police is to conduct special operations in the Colombo City and suburbs in the Western Province from today to trace underage children who are working as domestic helpers, Police Spokesman SDIG Ajith Rohana said.

He said the Police Children and Women's Bureau and Community Police will conduct the raids.

"Recent incidents show there are instances where underage children are being brought to Colombo from up country to serve as domestic servants and then were subject to cruelty and inhuman treatment by their so-called employers," SDIG Rohana said.

He said stringent action will be taken against the such employers and the brokers who bring these children from up country or other area to Colombo to work as domestic aides.(DSB)

    There could be more than 50 houses engaging underage children as domestics. Police will not even find 5 houses.

    Ram Tuesday, 27 July 2021 02:42 PM

    By now many would have despatched the young domestics to their respective parents in the estate sector

    WILL IT INCLUDE PARLIAMENTARIANS AND VVIP'S HOUSES??? OR ONLY POOR CITIZENS HOUSES?

    How about requesting any persons to report their underage employment, past and present to the nearest police station. That way all those who cleared their houses of this risk will also be netted, and a thorough investigation and tracing could happen.
