Welikada inmates on rooftop protest

A group of inmates of the Welikada Prison are currently staging a protest on top of a prison roof.

The inmates are demanding pardonings to be issued for all inmates on equal grounds without segregations.

Meanwhile, a group of 70 death row inmates at the Mahara Prison launched a hunger strike yesterday, demanding their death sentence to be commuted to life imprisonment.
