The CG said that the majority of this number have already graduated, with 4 Doctors and 2 Engineers among them.
Of a total of 12,088 ex-combatants who were arrested or turned themselves in during the Wanni Humanitarian Operation, have been socialised.
According to the CG, around 3,000 ex-combatants have joined the Police or the Civil Security Department.
A large amount is either abroad, employed in the Garment industry, or self-employed.
Only 46 ex-combatants are currently in rehabilitation.
