Two newly recruited hangmen for the Welikada and Bogambara Prisons have started their first fourteen-day training session at the Centre for Research and Training in Corrections of the Welikada Prison, official sources confirmed.

They said the appointment letters were given to these two hangmen, from the Pitipana and Negombo areas, at the Welikada Prisons premises yesterday.

In July last year, the Prisons Department called for applications for the posts of hangmen and some 175 had responded. Official sources also said during the training period, special protection would be given to them.(Jayantha Samarakoon)

    The trainers will be blocked by Dr Mervin, as he can't tolerate cruelty to a living being.

    Very Gooooooood News. Will they enforce it?

    Duminda Sunday, 03 February 2013 11:34 AM

    Best move.. If government implemented death penalty definitely the crime rate will be reduced -1st Kahawatta murderer & Panadura tripple murderer should hang to death.

    Training wont be a problem, as there are so many politicians to be hanged.

    How to put the loop around the neck and release the platform.

    Rata Haraka Saturday, 02 February 2013 07:48 AM

    This would be great news if the judiciary was truly independent and fair. With the current situation, much is left to be seen. Haiyo.

    hgvrnsb Saturday, 02 February 2013 04:05 AM

    This can be unreasonable if the decision went wrong..

    Lankan Saturday, 02 February 2013 04:07 AM

    It would have been gud news if Sri Lanka was practising law fairly. However these days all is decided by politicians. Hope innocent men wudnt get hung cos they go against powerful people.

    Campas boy Saturday, 02 February 2013 04:05 AM

    Hanging a human. Aiyyo it`s a barbaric act.

    Ruzaick Sunday, 03 February 2013 03:21 AM

    Let them start training by hanging the corrupt politicians. No Sri Lankan would object the hanging of politicians

    lk Saturday, 02 February 2013 04:55 AM

    lalitha Saturday, 02 February 2013 04:58 AM

    the Dr. from kelaniya will probably be doing the training n after 14days he might become a professor

    Apsara Sunday, 03 February 2013 06:29 AM

    We should concern about the grave situation of unemployment rates in SL. 175 applications were received for 02 positions - for an unwelcome position in our society. I read in a previous article on the same issue that even graduates applied for this position.

    Abbath Saturday, 02 February 2013 05:03 AM

    The way things are going in our banana republic these two will have enough hands-on experience soon
