Information has been received with regard to many persons over 60 years of age who are serving prison sentences. The Government believes that releasing them and directing them to social service will help ease congestion in prisons. Minister Dew Gunasekara is planning to enact new Legislation to release such prisoners who are serving jail terms for minor offences. He has already called for a report on prisoners over 60 years of age from the Prisons Commissioner.
