Another Protest By Prisoners

Jan 26, 2011 12:25:44 PM - thesundayleader.lk

A group of prisoners in the Anuradhapura Prison have once again commenced a protest within the prison premises.

The latest protest by prisoners in the Anuradhapura Prison comes just a few days after a massive protest by another group of prisoners that resulted in the death of one prisoner while over 20 others were injured.

Prisons Commissioner General Major General V.R. De Silva has said another group of prisoners in the Anuradhapura Prison have commenced a hunger strike.

The prisoners have reportedly commenced the hunger strike to protest against the overcrowding of wards in the prison, inadequate meals and the inspection of food that is brought from outside the prison premises.
