Welikada Prison Police to replace Intelligence Unit

Welikada Prison Police to replace Intelligence Unit

The Welikada Prison Intelligence Unit, which was disbanded, will be replaced by a Police unit, Co-Cabinet Spokesman Dr. Rajitha Senaratne said yesterday (15).

When questioned at a media briefing, as to whether the transfer of a female jailor attached to the ward where the female prisoners were was unjust, Dr. Senaratne said that it was done in order to reform the Prison and added that if the jailor had performed her duties well, there would not have been any drugs or mobile phones inside the Prison premises.

On being asked whether there was a breach of security within the Prison, with reference to recent reports of several parcels of drugs being thrown into the Prison premises, Dr. Senaratne said that there was a need for more severe measures to be taken.
