If Mahinda can why can’t they? - Waradharajah

If former President Mahinda Rajapaksa could release 12,000 LTTE cadres, the current government has the ability to release the political prisoners, said the first North East Provincial Council’s first Chief Minister Waradharajah Perumal.

He said this participating in a protest staged in Killinochchi demanding the release of political prisoners yesterday (01).

He noted that the current government that came into power on the votes of the Tamil people, should immediately release the Tamil political prisoners.

Further, former MP of the EPDP Murugesu Chandrakumar said the government had promised to release all political prisoners but it was sad that they had failed to fulfill their promise so far.

The protestors demanded the immediate release of all political prisoners held at the Anuradhapura prison.

Political representatives, relatives of the prisoners and civil organization representatives and residents participated in this protest.
