Minister of Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms Chandrasiri Gajadeera says that the inmates set fire to the records room of the Magazine remand prison on Tuesday, in order to destroy their documents as they had the motive to flee on that day or later. (SD)
Seems lots of shenanigans going on in prison with connivance of the guards and other officials. What action against them?

Mr. Gajadeera what is the logic of that...you mean once they burnt down the record room and destroyed their documents it is easy for them to flee...how come the ash can make them invisible...?

Under the leadership and tactics of SF? Setting fire I thought is a tactic only of Gamani Dissanayake (Jaffna Public Library - known to be the best in Asia at that time!)

Have you come across inmates who wanted to remain in prison?

Some news article says the prison inmates were provoked by some medicine which gives for the mental patients. The journalists also have the responsibility to find about this type of logics before they publish their news articles. Truth is those medicines do not provoke ones feeling and they help to calm down their feeling. The people spread these myth should understand that every people in this country are not stupid.

@ashoka jayaweera : they destroyed the documents as once they get out of the prison the autorities do not have any details to capture them later... Simple as that.. Keep up the good work mr gajadeera
