Health Minister Dr.Rajitha Senaratne has stated that the last government relased LTTE cadres without any scrutiny. Now, when they are out of power, they make a hue and cry over the release of political prisoners. There is no basis for such criticism.
Addressing the media, he further stated that earlier JVP ers too were released. Therefore on the same basis we can reelase the political prisoners. There is no issue about it.
