Secretary of the Ministry of Rehabilitation and Prisons Reforms A Dissanayaka states that there are currently 850 prison inmates on death row.

He added that applications have been called for the executioner since the ministry needs to be on stand-by to carry out the death sentences at any given time.

Meanwhile, a special investigation has commenced into mobile phones being thrown over the walls of the Colombo Magazine Prison.

The investigation commenced after several such phones were recovered from within the prison premises during the last couple of days.
