The Prison officer who used his headgear to cover the face of convicted former Tangalle PS chairman Sampath Chandrapushpa Vidanapathirana has been transferred.

Later the prison guard was transferred on the charges that his behavior made inconveniences to the Prison Department.

The former Tangalle Pradeshiya Sabha chairman and three others were given 20 years rigorous imprisonment recently for killing British tourist Khuram Shaikh and gang raping his Russian girlfriend.

Later journalists who tried to photograph the convicted former Tangalle PS Chairman were prevented by prison officials.

The transferred guard used his headgear to cover the former PS Chairman’s face at that moment.

Prison Media Spokesman T.N. Upuldeniya said the behavior of this particular guard caused much inconveniences to the Prison Department.

Accordingly, the guard who attached to the Welikada Prison has been transferred to the Open Prison at Pallansena in Negombo with effect from yesterday.
