The Committee to Protect Prisoners’ Rights today revealed that prisoners who protested Angunakolapelessa Prison Superintendent’s conduct and the STF raids in the prison premises were mercilessly beaten by authorities on November 22, 2018.
The organization, addressing a press conference in Colombo this morning, released several videos illustrating how the Police and prison authorities carried out a brutal attack on the protesting prisoners.
The committee also urged the government to initiate an investigation into the assault on the prisoners and penalize those responsible for the attack.
The incident took place under the watch of the “fake government” headed by President Maithripala Sirisena and the fake Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
The prisoners carried out the protest atop a tower in the prison premises against the conduct of the Superintendent of the prison and the constant searches carried out by the STF. About 100 prisoners took part in the protest.
