Deir Ezzor | “Autonomous Administration” cancels contracts of hundreds of volunteers working in its institutions
SOHR activists have confirmed that “Autonomous Administration in northern and north-eastern Syria” have canceled the temporary contracts of hundreds of officials in Deir Ezzor. This turning point coincides with calls by Deir Ezzor residents to secure job opportunities in all sectors. However, the Autonomous Administration’s decision deprives the province’s people from job opportunities and aims to stall permitting financial allocations.
In Abu Hamam hospital, the financial office has not permitted spending the financial allocations, after the stall of hospital’s administration. Moreover, the hospital’s administration has rejected the number of employees announced about by the health commission in Deir Ezzor, which got the health commission into trouble after it announced the names of people passed the private contest it held. Accordingly, the commission will be forced to eliminate some names; this, in turn, will lead to a decline in the number of medical stuff in the hospital. The hospital’s administration also refused to employ guards in the hospital and it put Asayish Forces in charge.
Meanwhile, the city’s residents expressed their rejection of “militarizing the hospital”, as they described, especially since there were civilian guards who have volunteered to guard the hospital for no salaries, waiting for permitting funds, so that they can continue working in the hospital.
The new decision refuses to grant contracts to the guards in water purification stations in Al-Baghouz town, Al-Sha’fa and Al-Susah cities, at a time when the Autonomous Administration had promised these guards to grant them permanent contracts instead of the temporary contracts only after working for a few months without giving any money.
The Autonomous Administration has also refused to appoint guards for schools in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, despite the ongoing strike by the region’s teachers one of whose demands is the appointment of guards for schools, especially after the prevalence of thefts in light of the security disorder in areas under the control of Syria Democratic Forces.
