Sri Lanka advertises for executioners to hang drug traffickers
  • Candidates should be Sri Lankan, male, aged between 18 and 45, and have both ‘excellent moral character’ and ‘mental strength’, said an advertisement in the local newspapers
  • Sri Lanka’s last hangman quit in 2014 without ever having to execute anyone, citing stress after seeing the gallows for the first time. Another hired last year never turned up for work
