The fire brigade has been called in, while initial reports from the prison say that inmates of the Magazine Prison had set a building on fire following a protest.

At least 20 inmates and four prison guards were admitted to the Colombo National Hospital following the clash at the prison, hospital sources said. Police used tear gas to control the tense situation at the Magazine prison a short while ago, a reporter stated.

 

 


Following the clash LTTE suspects who are placed in a ward within the Magazine Prison were taken out and were taken to the Welikada Prison a short while ago.

    kumaraya Tuesday, 24 January 2012 12:24 PM

    You are correct, Amila. This is what I keep wondering! How can a nation be governed and can it PROGRESS with serious problems with students, teachers, nurses, engineers, doctors, lawyers, etc. Is it worth it?

    Ashokh Tuesday, 24 January 2012 01:02 PM

    The Prison Administration is not at fault here. Its the Civic Law that is to be blamed for having kept suspects in prison for too long without "Analayst Department Reports" and other issues.

    Wish the administers of law in courts will speed us the documentation of these prisoners................either to serve a sentence or be released to go home.................

    when will that day come !

    sid Tuesday, 24 January 2012 12:55 PM

    Amila every country has its fair share of problems so you neednt be sarcastic about it. Sri Lanka is still Paradise on Earth

    Leslie Tuesday, 24 January 2012 01:10 PM

    Is this a prelude to harming General Sarath Fonseka?

    Fair N Square Tuesday, 24 January 2012 01:25 PM

    Sri-Lanka a place like no other... good or bad we survive.....
