SJB fears for life of IUSF convener taken out of prison at night

By Saman Indrajith

The main Opposition Samagi Jana Balavegaya yesterday, in Parliament, said that the life of Inter University Students’ Federation Convenor, Wasantha Mudalige, in custody, was in danger.

Chief Opposition Whip and Kandy District MP Lakshman Kiriella said that Mudalige had been taken out of the prison by the law enforcement authorities stating that he could lead them to show the locations he had mentioned during interrogations. “We have information that Mudalige has been taken out of the detention centre several times at night.

We know what happened to the inmates taken out by the police. Most of them were shot dead and some lame excuses were trotted out. We fear that Mudalige, too, will suffer the same fate.”

State Minister of Defence Pramitha Bandara Tennakoon responded saying that investigations conducted under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) could not stop.

Tennakoon said that suspects had been detained on a court order and they were taken to some places as part of the investigations.

Chief Opposition Whip Kiriella said Mudalige, the Inter University Bhikkhu Front Convener Galwana Siridhamma Thera, and student activist Hashan Gunatilake, had been in detention for over 45 days.
