Colombo isolates Tamil political prisoners within heavily fortified cells

[TamilNet, Friday, 31 July 2020, 22:39 GMT]
SL Prison authorities not only continue denying families of Tamil political prisoners (TPPs) to their kith and kin, but they also refuse access to deliver essential supplies to them for more than five months. In the meantime, occupying Colombo, which relocated the Tamil prisoners from other prisons to Anuradhapura, has isolated the TPPs transferring them into heavily fortified isolation cells, the families complain.

Most of the Tamil prisoners were transferred from Jaffna and Colombo to the notorious prison in Anuradhapura a month ago.

TPPs in New Magazine prison in Colombo have also been isolated, causing uncertainty and trauma among the inmates.

Earlier, the TPPs were kept in separate zones where they had some social life with fellow prisoners. In New Magazine prison, the TPPs also had a small Pi'l'laiyar temple for worship. Now, prisoners from South serving sentences for serious crimes have been transferred into the rooms where the TPPs were detained earlier, the families complain.
