    yes, makes sense when we have convicted killers in Parliament

    Does the mafia boss need more space in the prisons for his political opponents, or does he now have a big heart for the minority he hates?

    Why only 7 Wednesday, 23 June 2021 02:33 PM

    Release them all. Why keep them without any proof or trial for so long when the war was over 12 years ago?

    Were they convicted prisoners or just PTA detainees?

    Will they receive compensation from the government for imprisoning them without conviction in the Court of Law of a so called Democratic country.

    This is happening because government is under tremendous pressure consequent to EU resolution UN Human rights head's statement.

    I think they are innocent than those who decide their fate.When murderer's represent parliment they must not have punished like this.

    How were these selected? Was one of them a prisoner with whom Namal Rajapakse has said he shared a cell or met him while he himself was in prison and for whom he built a house in the Vanni? Political favoritism to political prisoners at work, Sri Lanka style?

    Pantha Kumaran Wednesday, 23 June 2021 10:37 PM

    Are we giving way to the demand of UN? This is very surprise news to me. All these years nobody dared to release specially Tamil prisoners. Even that man Maithiri did nothing.

    What about Ranjan?
