Minister of Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms, Chandrasiri Gajadeera says that allowances for prisoners have been increased as there is more work in the prison.

Minister Chandrasiri Gajadeera expressed the following views about the freeing of prisoners on the Independence Day while addressing a function in Matara yesterday.

Speaking at the function Minister Chandrasiri Gajadeera said: “Some say that when prisoners are told that they freed from prison they just leave with their belongings. That is not how it is done. They are brought to Colombo, along with their families and treated to a good meal, subsequent to religious observances. We pay all of you salaries. There is more work now, therefore we have increased your allowances. “
