COLOMBO (News 1st):- The second day of the process of releasing the employees of investment zones to their homes, started today (March 28). After being subjected to medical tests the employees of the Biyagama investment zone were sent to their homes.

More than 2800 registered employees were transported in buses after a sterilization process.

The Executive Director of the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka, M. K. D Lawrance said:

“In order to send them to the police station, we subjected them to mandatory medical tests. Measures have been taken to self-quarantine the people after sending them to the police station. We have informed all the police stations. We have also informed the relevant health sector officials. These preventive measures will take place according to that.”

He also expressed views regarding the employees who are not registered.

“There are no actions taken regarding the employees who are not registered because we gave two days for that. We will take future measures after having discussions with the management and the workers.”

The employees arriving from Biyagama were directed to the Hatton police this evening (March 28). Our correspondent reported that the employees who arrived at Balangoda faced difficulties due to the lack of transport services.

Meanwhile, another group returning to their homes arrived at the Katunayake investment zone.
