TNA MP and Spokesperson M.A Sumanthiran has visited the Anuradhapura Prison along with Provincial Council members Asmin Yakoob and Sanankiyan Sayandan this morning and has engaged in a discussion with the prisoners who were observing a token fast demanding their release.
There were 36 prisoners at the Anuradhapura prison and all of them are engaging in the fast. The authorities have admitted two prisoners to the Anuradhapura Hospital. They have shown the way which the government keeps them in prison is unfair and also requested the TNA MP Sumanthiran to take their cause to the Prime Minister
Meanwhile, the MP Sumanthiran told the parliament last week that all political prisoners should be released as agreed by the government. However, Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe replied the MP that no political prisoners in Sri Lanka, only the LTTE suspects.
