A special loan scheme is to be introduced for persons who are being released from prisons.
Minister Chandrasiri Gajadeera said that this programme is being implemented in order to strengthen the economy of those who leave the prisons. The rehabilitated inmates face many difficulties due to not being able to find a livelihood. They will be provided 250,000 at a low interest rate of 4 percent which can be paid within 10 years. Minister Chandrasiri Gajadeera said that this facility will be available for rehabilitated former LTTE carders as well.
