    However, the action presumably a dispropotionate. Need to investigate, if law still remains.

    Killing by government personnel is so common in Sri Lnaka today. Many people do not even pay much notice to these items of news except the victims families.

    Protecting of prisons is the responsibility of the government.

    ok from now on when the prisoners are trying to escape ask the guards to chant "pirith".

    Prison reform: If the gaols are shifted to isolated places to utilize the sprawling land and environ for some commercial enterprises, what would happen?

    Rahmathullah Saturday, 21 August 2010 10:16 AM

    This is an usual excuse when they kill a suspect in police and prison custody. I never believe this as I know even prison guards carry out contract killings.
