Transfer Tamil political prisoners at the Anuradhapura Prison to the Jaffna Prison:- Sumanthiran


Tamil National Alliance Spokesperson M.A.Sumanthiran has urged the government to transfer the Tamil political prisoners at the Anurathapura Prison to the Jaffna Prison since they were currently in mental distress. Sumanthiran made the request to the government after meeting the Tamil political prisoners at the Anuradhapura Prison recently.

He was speaking to the media. He said:

“We met the inmates in the Anuradhapura Prison who are sentenced under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. We inquired about the incident where the State Minister visited the prison, took several inmates to one place, and threatened them. We have learned that two inquiries are being held in this regard. The inquiries are conducted by the Human Rights Commission and the Commissioner-General of Prisons. The inmates are distressed, and it is reasonable.

The government should take responsibility for the incident when a State Minister carries a pistol to the prison premises. Even Prison officials are checked before they enter the prison premises. The Justice Minister expressed his regret to Parliament in this regard and apologized to the prisoners and their families. Therefore it is clear that such an incident had taken place, The parliamentary seat of the relevant State Minister must also be removed. Above all, the MP must be arrested, and his pistol must be taken into custody. Three police complaints have been lodged into the matter.”
