No General Amnesty to TPPs , If given security Forces men also had to be given : Minister Marapone

Although the Tamil Political parties have requested general Amnesty for Tamil Political Prisoners (TPPs), Government will not grant General Amnesty to them.

The Cases will be taken up individually and those who are in detention for long time without being charged will be released. However solution will be found before the middle of November, said Minister for Prisons Marapone said.

It is notable that most of the TPPs are detained solely on their “Extracted” confessions, and do not have any photographic or video evidences like Channel 4 etc. against them,  like the security forces.
