Following the alleged unlawful sacking of over one hundred workers at Sierra Leone House of Parliament, the Minister of Employment, Labour and Social Security, Mohamed Rahman Swaray, says Parliament flouted Labour laws by skipping due process.

In a brief discussion with this press, Mr. Swaray said “I should have summoned them but I am here to help them resolve this issue. In fact, they did not inform me about their decision. They should have first contacted the Commissioner of Labour but they didn’t,” he said, adding “if you break the law, we will come after you, we will chase you.”

The Minister who was visibly angry over what he described as unlawful and lacking due process, went further to state that despite what has happened he is available to assist Parliament resolve this issue.

It could be recalled that there was public outcry and anger following the alleged unlawful sacking of over one hundred workers at Parliament by the Clerk of Parliament, Hon. Paran Tarawally. With the intervention of the Minister of Labour, Mohamed Swaray, it is hoped that feelings would be soothed and all wrongs righted in the shortest possible time.

He concluded by saying that employers must not take the law into their own hands but should always consult with the Employment Ministry as they have the professional who can diligently manage such affairs coherently.
