President visits Welikada Prison…

February 11, 2020  

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa made an unannounced visit to the Welikada prison in the evening today (10). President Rajapaksa engaged in casual conversation with the prisoners.

Reportedly, a majority of the prisoners have been imprisoned for the use of narcotic substances.

Prisoners stated that the prison is overcrowded by thrice the recommended amount of inmates. Inmates further added that their cases have been compiled based on false information and therefore their court hearings had been delayed resulting in longer prison time.

President in return responded that he would appoint a committee to look into the matter.
