Prisons Commissioner Emil Ranjan Lamahewa, arrested by the CID on Thursday in connection with the Welikada Prisons riot, has been sent on compulsory leave, Prisons Department media spokesman Thushara Upuldeniya said yesterday.

He said the future course of action would be decided after the case against him was concluded.

“According to the Establishments Code, any government servant, who was remanded in connection with a misdeed, should be sent on compulsory leave. If he was found guilty to the charges, he will lose his job. If he is acquitted from all charges, he will be reinstated in his position,” Mr. Upuldeniya said.

Mr. Lamahewa, who was the Superintendent of the Magazine Prison in 2012, was arrested on Thursday and remanded till April 10 in connection with the 2012 prison riot where at least 27 prison inmates were killed and several others injured. (Ajith Siriwardana)

    When Gota, who pulled the strings in this case will be arrested?

    These are honest government servants if anyone looks closely and I personally know them. None of them are thugs and they haven't stolen anything from public like Gota had who are now driving their Range Rovers and Defenders around town. Now the drug rings are going to get stronger knowing that the narcotics and prisons are under them.
