As a gesture of goodwill and with the advent of the Thai Pongal festival, President Maithripala Sirisena is processing the release on humanitarian grounds the remaining 15 Indian fishermen from Puducherry who are detained in Sri Lanka for poaching.

There are also eighty 87 boats of Indian fishermen which have been detained in instances over a period of time, and are presently in Sri Lankan judicial custody.

Their release would be favourably considered upon claims being registered by the respective owners in the relevant Courts, in keeping with the legally stipulated practice.

It may be recalled that earlier, the Government of India released 10 Sri Lankan fishermen in Indian custody.

With the on-going process for release by the Sri Lankan authorities of the Indian fishermen, both countries would have reciprocated on the fishermen in each other’s custody.
