Minister of National Dialogue Mano Ganeshan stated that the government had decided not to offer common amnesty to LTTE suspects and other Tamil Detainees.

A special discussion about the problems of prison detainees including some LTTE suspects was held with the patronage of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at Temple Trees yesterday.

Minister of Law and Order and Prison Reforms Thilak Marapana and Minister of Rehabilitation and Resettlement D.M. Swaminadan also joined in this discussion.

A group of detainees including some LTTE suspects who are kept in Colombo Magazine Prison, Anuradhapura and Batticaloa demanded the authorities to release them and staged a six day hunger strike recently.

150 LTTE suspects participated in this hunger strike and, the strikers temporarily suspended their action after the government pledged them to provide swift actions to their problems.
