    Sri Lankan hangmen wanted as drug traffickers face death penalty

    The roles pay about 158 per month, and candidates should be Sri Lankan, male, aged 18 to 45 and with "excellent moral character".

    Sri Lanka is trying to hire two hangmen after bringing back the death penalty for drug traffickers.

    In a move inspired by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs, Sri Lanka's President Maithripala Sirisena said last week he wants to resume the use of capital punishment for drug traffickers in the next two months.

    A recruitment advert has appeared in the state-run Daily News offering the posts at 36,310 rupees (158) per month, which is above average for a government job.

    Drug trafficking is a capital offence in Sri Lanka, but the country's last execution for any crime took place in 1976. Death sentences have been commuted to life in prison since then.

    Anyone wishing to apply for the role of executioner should be Sri Lankan, male, aged between 18 and 45, and have both "excellent moral character" and "mental strength," according to the ad.

    The country's recent history with executioners suggest it may prove difficult to fill the posts.

    Sri Lanka's last hangman quit in 2014 without ever having to execute anyone, claiming he was too stressed out by the sight of the gallows, while another hired last year never turned up for work.

    An uninformed opponent is a dangerous opponent.

    Violence and death seem to be the only answers that people understand.

    After 43 years, Sri Lanka to return death penalty in 'coming days'

    Sri Lankan president Maithripala Sirisena says he's decided on a date to carry out executions of drug offenders

    Sri Lanka looks set to end a 43-year moratorium on capital punishment as President Maithripala Sirisena continues his offensive on the drug trade.

    Sri Lankan police on Monday destroyed nearly 800 kilos of cocaine in the presence of the President, valued at more than $141 million.

    The drugs were seized in four raids between June 2016 and June 2018. More drugs await the conclusion of court cases before they are also destroyed under judicial supervision, officials said.

    Mr Sirisena has vowed to step up his 'drug war' and promised to import high tech equipment to detect narcotics at ports and airports.

    He also said he's decided on the date when Sri Lanka's first executions since 1976 will be carried out.

    “The death penalty is part of the country's constitution but it has not been implemented,” the president told reporters.

    “This is the reason for the increase in crimes, underworld activities and the drug menace.”

    "In the coming days the death penalty will be carried out. The list of names in this regards has been finalised and we have also decided on the date."

    Capital Punishment is not outlawed in Sri Lanka and is a mandatory penalty for murder.

    But there have been no executions since 1976 because successive presidents have refused to sign death warrants.

    Consequently, all death sentences have been commuted to life in prison, with over 400 prisoners serving time on death row according to the Sri Lankan Prison service.

    Mr Sirisena signaled his intention to bring back capital punishment in July last year.

    In March the government advertised in newspapers for a new executioner, asking for candidates with "excellent moral character” and “mental strength".

    The president’s approach is influenced by that of Filipino president Rodrigo Duterte, whose violent ‘war on drugs’ has claimed thousands of lives.

    Mr Sirisena visited the Philippines in January and praised Duterte’s strongarm tactics as an “example to the world”.

    “Drug menace is rampant in my country and I feel we should follow your footsteps to control this hazard,” he said in Manila.

    Human Rights groups are urging the president to cancel the planned executions and reinstate the moratorium on capital punishment.

    “President Sirisena’s decision to restore the death penalty because he was inspired by the Philippine’s murderous ‘drug war’ may be the worst possible justification and would violate international law,” said Meenakshi Ganguly, South Asia director of Human Rights Watch in a statement.

    “Executions, whether imposed by a judge or carried out unlawfully by the police, are not the way to address drug offenses.”
