The local education office in Gharyan remains closed a week after angry protestors first stormed it . . .[restrict]complaining about unpaid salaries. Local teachers and other education staff forced their way into the building last Tuesday ordering staff out and saying that they would not be allowed back until the salaries had been paid.
According to local education official, Nagy Shanana, the delays are due to mismatches relating to the new National Identity number system. Of the 5,000 people employed in the education sector in the area, he said there were problems with the IDs of some 2,000. But claiming that the problem was being sorted out, he called for proper security to enable staff to return to work.
Local teachers saw they have not received their salaries for four months. [/restrict]
