The Ministry of Prisons and Rehabilitation says plans are in place to export brooms and ekel brooms manufactured by prisoners.

Secretary to the Ministry of Prisons and Rehabilitation, G.S. Vithanage said that there was a huge demand for these items from the Middle East.

He said that measures have been taken to export the first batch of these items, produced at the Bogambara Prison, in the near future. He noted that inmates of other prisons will also be provided with the raw materials for these items in the future for their production.

The Secretary to the Ministry Prisons and Rehabilitation added that foreign exchange could be earned through this initiative.
