Commissioner General of Prisons Chandrarathna Pallegama today requested the people not to bring any prohibited items, when visiting their relatives at the prisons.


He warned that if they brought any such items they would also be put in prison.


“Come and see the relatives but keep in mind to bring less food for them because, as the Prisons Department, we always provide food,” the Commissioner said.


People had used to bring illegal items like heroin in the pretext of bringing food on several occasions, he said.


The Commissioner said people used to bring illegal things using cardamom, chili pepper and using false bottom in food containers.


“If someone caught with any illegal item they will also have to come into the same prison,” he said. (Chaturanga Pradeep and Indika Sri Aravinda)

    I Dont know now. But 5 years back I was in remand and the food they provided was horrible and no one could eat that and families had to bring food and give bribes to get them in. Cant they organize a canteen system where the remand prisoners can pay through their families and get a decent meal. After all prisoners are still human beings.

    Backbones were bent during the MR regime. Now they are trying to keep them straight, so we must appreciate without criticizing.
