Kalutara Chief Magistrate Bharathi Wijeratne yesterday called for a report on telephone conversations that took place between individuals inside the prison and those outside on the day the Black Maria carrying inmates from the Kalutara Prison was ambushed, which led to the deaths of five prisoners and two prison officials.

The prisoners were being transported from the Kalutara Prison to the Kaduwela Courts when an unidentified gang attacked the bus.

She ordered the telecommunications companies to furnish the required details to court. Further Magisterial Inquiry was postponed for March 16. (Sunil Thanthriarachchi)

    Its weird when the court is attempting to do the work of the police. The police is more interested on catch and release rather than catch and prevent. via DM Android App

    Really? Is it now official that individuals inside the prison are using phones to communicate with outer world? Why shouldn't the Magistrate order the prison officials to bust it if such details can be obtained via cell companies?
