The hunger strike which was launched by several high profile criminals at the Boossa Prison last Thursday (10) has been called off unconditionally, the Prison Department said.

At least 40 high profile criminals including Kanjipani Imran, Wele Suda, Kosgoda Tharaka and Podi Lassi were on hunger strike.

The Prisons Spokesman said the inmates launched the hunger strike in protest of the restriction on visitors and removal of telephone facilities.

The prisoners also protested against the search operations carried out on the inmates when they were brought to the Prison after being produced in the courts and demanded to increase the weekly amount that they can pay to purchase additional foods.
