Prison commissioner Chandana Ekanayake says that an agreement will be signed next week with the Sri Lanka Ports Authority to fulfil the requirement of SLPA's bakery goods from the Welikada Prison.

He said that this is carried out as part of a programme already underway with the Avant Garde company. The programme involves rehabilitating prison inmates and reintegrating them to society as employed persons.

Accordingly, measures have been taken direct prison inmates towards several occupations, and trained prison inmates will be employed in construction companies in the future, he added.
