Service-disconnected 12 EPC field officers reinstated

Twelve field officers deprived of their wages and jobs for two months by the Eastern Provincial Council (EPC) Health Ministry were reinstated yesterday.

EPC Health Services Director Dr. S. Arul Kumaran said they were employed to prevent rabies.

The officers informed Eastern Province Governor Shan Wijelal de Silva about their issue last week and he promised to resolve it.

The field officers have been working at the provincial Animal Husbandry Department, but the Health Ministry of the Central Government stopped their salaries. Later the Health Ministry transferred them to the Health Department of the province.
