The hunger strike launched by suspected ex-LTTE detainees has been called off after the assurance given by the President to set up a mechanism to look into their issues.

Prisons Commissioner General Rohana Pushpakumara said he and opposition leader R. Sampanthan, TNA MP M. A. Sumanthiran visited the prisoners at the Magazine Prison in Colombo this morning and informed them that President Maithripala Sirisena had directed the Justice Minister to formulate a mechanism to look into their issues and finish the process between October 31 and November 07.

Mr. Pushpakumara said he would inform the prisoners in Anuradhapura and Bogambara prison too about the decision.

Ex-LTTE cadres detained at the Magazine Prison in Colombo and several other prisons had launched a hunger strike on Monday calling for their release.
