Junior Foreign Service employees treated unfairly! Featured

Junior employees in the Foreign Service are frustrated as they are being unfairly treated, say Foreign Ministry sources.

Some office assistants attached to the Public Administration Ministry have been posted on a short-term basis as bungalow caretaker, park keeper etc. at foreign missions abroad.

However, they are not covered by a medical insurance given to all other Foreign Service employees.

On some occasions, they have to pay more than what they draw as their salary to get treatment for a minor illness.

Furthermore, they are not given return air tickets for the country they are posted to.

Junior employees have brought these matters to the attention of top officials of the Foreign Affairs Ministry, but without success.
