The Tamil National Alliance has called on the government to immediately remove the State Minister involved in unruly behaviour at the Anuradhapura Prison complex from his post.
The TNA, taking to Twitter requested that the State Minister be arrested and charged after an immediate inquiry for allegedly threatening to kill prisoners at the Anuradhapura Prison.
Prison sources claim a State Minister who was under the influence, entered the Colombo Prison Headquarters on the 6th of September with a group of friends while the same State Minister had entered the Anuradhapura Prison on the 12th in similar fashion.
It is reported that the State Minister with his firearm entered a prison cell holding former LTTE cadres and escorted several of them out of their cells.
The State Minister is said to have entered the Colombo Prison premises claiming to want to show his friends the gallows.
