The relatives of the Tamil Political prisoners have submitted a memorandum to the CM, C.V.Wigneswaran, requesting him to exert pressure on the government for the TPPs who are undergoing torture to be kept in a separate ward.
They have further stated in the Memorandum that their kins are in prison for periods between 10 – 24 years. The release of our kins are now connected with ethnic politics beyond the usual laws.
Although our kins were kept in an exclusive ward, in recent times hard criminals, Drug convicts and murderers, which is affecting their mental set up.
The life cycles of TPPs and the criminals are completely different from each other. Although the President had instructed to provide TPPs, with counselling, Yoga and physical training facilities, nothing had done by the Prison Authorities to provide them even after 3 months had passed after the President’s instruction. If you consider yourself as a person interested in the future of the TPPs , please apply pressure on the president to keep the TPPs in a separate ward and provide the facilities instructed by the president, they had said.
