The area around the cellblock in the Colombo Remand Prison where Yoshitha Rajapaksa and three others are detained on charges of money laundering has been declared a restricted area.

Only the two jailers on duty are authorised to enter J block of the prison where the suspects are detained. The suspects are kept under 24 hours surveillance by the jailers.


One jailer has been assigned to be present whenever Yoshitha Rajapaksa is taken out to meet visitors. All the suspects have been ordered not to leave the area without informing the jailers on duty, according to sources.


These restrictions have been placed on them after a mobile phone was found in a cell near Yoshitha's, prisons officers said.(Jayantha Samarakoon

    This is not fair, he should be kept with pickpockets and thieves and should be dumped in a tiny cell with 6 other inmates and forced to use the same toilet.

    Totally keep the culprits away from visitors as they are not ordinary culprits.

    Mind it, Yoshitha is not a easy man, he played out in Millions at this small age. Keep him alone and monitor his activities.

    Better not to allow visitors to meet them. This family is a dangerous family who looted our country.
