The tense situation prevailing in the Magazine remand prison in Welikada is yet to be under total control. Despite the heavy presence of the military and special forces the situation within the Magazine remand prison is still tense due to heavy resistance from the inmates. Law enforcement authorities have been unable to move inside the prison.

Inmates suspected for drug offences are suspected to be involved in the chaos that took place this afternoon. The police did not comment on whether the suspects were fired at by the police.

LTTE suspects were removed from the prison at around 3.00pm and moved to the main prison complex due to the fracas. (HF&SD)

    seems like the govt is losing control. Every week some group or the other, Uni students, Uni staff, CEB, CPC, are on strike or protesting. Whose is going to be next week?

    I think the prisoners eat too much. Perhaps a meal a day and lot's of water will do the trick.Oh yes if they misbehave cut the legs off one at a time and if that fails the hands and so forth.The sooner the rotten guys go off to heaven the better for all of us.Imagine the savings and also no minister of prisons required.lol

    Prisoners will naturally revolt when they find the kingpin of narcotics and a murder accused like Duminda Silwa is able to get away scot free from the arm of justice. Where is justice in this country. Most of the criminals are in Parliament and war heroes are in jail.
