The government has instructed the Attorney General’s office to take suitable action in order to release some of the suspects who have been detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

Prison Commissioner General Rohana Pushpakumara said that this step has been taken after lengthy discussion between the President, the Prime Minister, the Attorney General and authorities of other relevant institutions.

Accordingly the Attorney General’s Office would instruct its state counsels to take steps to apply bail for 31 suspects tomorrow.  Following this, steps would be taken to apply bail for another 30 suspects who are currently detained in prison.

In a statement issued by the Prison Commissioner General, it states that the government would study all the cases of other suspects and take every possible action to bring relief.

However, the hunger strike launched by 107 Tamil detainees in the Colombo Magazine prison and another 29 at the Anuradhapura Prison is still continuing.

Meanwhile TNA MP Selvam Addaikalanathan told our news team that the government deceived his party by promising to release the Tamil detainees including some LTTE suspects.

  

At the same time, TNA MP Suresh Premachandran said that arrangements have been made to launch hartals in five district next Friday if these Tamil detainees are not released.
