Speaking at an event held on Saturday, Minister of Higher Education S.B. Dissanayake commented again on his alleged involvement in securing the release of several inmates of the Bogambara Prison.

Minister of Higher Education, S.B. Dissanayake expressed these views;  “All of the Chief Incumbents in the Nuwara Eliya District signed a letter asking the President to pardon these persons. For the first time in history both Chief Prelates addressed a letter to the President asking that  these persons be pardoned. It was not only me. I did steer it. That is true. These prisoners were in the right. They had to be pardoned and released. These murderers were from the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna. They have accepted this today.”
