No General Amnesty to 215 former militants, President declares categorically

President Maithripala had stated to an Indian Media that the 215 ex-militants will not be granted general amnesty.

There are no political prisoners in Sri Lanka. Requests had been made to revoke the PTA and release the Tamil Political Prisoners. Even the western countries are confronted with Terrorism.

All these factors will be considered before the PTA is revoked, he had said.
