The Prison Commissioner said that 17 Jail Guards were interdicted based on the evidence mentioned in a report submitted by the CID. The list of names has been produced at the Prison Headquarters.


45 prison officials were accused of committing EzCash transactions in connection with Wele Suda’s drug trafficking. The Prison Department says that 17 among them were thus interdicted.


The personnel interdicted include 16 officers of Remand Prison in Colombo and one from Galle Prison.

However it is said that the alleged high rank officials are still in service.

The CID has informed the Colombo Magistrate Court about the officials who had received cash from Wele Suda  through EzCash. Accordingly Prisons Commissioner General Rohana Pushpakumara had requested the CID to provide information regarding the suspects.
