Political Prisoners appeal to President to help them granting general amnesty in his good governance

Political prisoners who had been detained for a long time in prisons had appealed to the President Maithripala Sirisena, to grant them General Amnesty and release them.

We are highly grieved by any concrete action being taken on our affair and at the statement of the Minister of Justice, stating that there are no political prisoners now.

As you have taken concrete action and proved that you could provide the country with Good Governance, we most humbly request you to help us lead a normal life, granting us  a General Amnesty, they had said.
