Drug convicts will be detained separately

Aug 19, 2010 5:02:15 AM - itnnews.lk

The suspects who have been imprisoned on drug related offences will be held separately.

Minister Dew Gunasekera told Parliament that this is an important step in the process of rehabilitation of the inmates. The Minister said that several prisons have been identified to detain those who are imprisoned on drug related offences.

Experts are of the view that those who have committed drug related offences for the first or second time can be rehabilitated in a short period of time. Therefore they will be kept separately. He said the programme has already been launched in this connection.
