A bill on social workers will be drafted soon: Attorney General.

Attorney General (AG) Mohamed Anil has said that a bill on social workers detailing their rights and their disciplinary code will soon be drafted.

Speaking at a ceremony to conclude workshops held by the gender ministry aimed at social workers, Anil said the bill will ensure that work done by social workers is accepted by the laws and will make sure their services go under a constitutional framework.

The AG also said that the law should not only be targeted at government social workers but should also include social workers from private organisations and NGOs.
