All high profile criminals detained in prisons would be identified and sent to the Boossa Prison and several such prisoners have already been transferred to Boossa, Defence Secretary Kamal Gunaratna said.
He said high-tech equipment had been installed at the Boossa Prison to prevent any prisoner from using mobile phones to communicate with outsiders.
Major General (Retd) Gunaratne said underworld criminal activities, organized crimes, drug trafficking as well as extortion rackets were operated from within prison walls.
He said there were some prison officials who support prisoners to operate these illegal activities within the prisons.
“We are planing to implement several measures to prevent operating drug networks and underworld activities from inside the prisons. We have set up two scanners at the Angunukolapelessa and Boossa Prisons. I have instructed the Acting IGP to deploy STF personnel to maintain security outside, ” he said.

Will you send Duminda Silva to Boosa, or he is already out of the Prison in the middle of the night?

Great move if you afre serious. This is the foundation of all big crimes in the country. Not only that engagement of young people in drug business has led to a shortage of labour plus investment in lawful avenues. I propose to expand the police vigilance by increase the police number of police stations to about 4000 smaller at rate of one per one Grama Niladhari division. They will collect information on all illegal issues and also domestic violence which have put feminity to very low standard.

For your information, high profile criminals are outside the prison and in their homes enjoying a luxurious life. What you are referring to are those who did the dirty jobs of those high profile criminals.
