Interviews for the post of executioner will be held on March 27 and 28 by the Department of Prisons.

A total of 79 applicants were selected for the interview out of 102 applications which included that of an American national.

However, the applications of the American national and two women have been rejected since the applications of males were only taken into consideration.

Two suitable candidates would be selected following the interview and would be recruited as the hangmen of the Welikada prisons, the Justice and Prison Reforms Ministry said.
