The National Organization for the Release of Political Prisoners has requested that the political prisoners detained under the PTA be released at least in the blooming New Year.
PTA does not have a human face. As it has a beastly face political prisoners are undergoing severe distresses, said Fr. Marimuthu Sakthivel, an activist of the National Organization for release of political prisoners.
The National Organization for the release of political prisoners had made a complaint with Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission yesterday, with regard to the delays and irregularities in clearing cases of the political prisoners who are detained for long periods under PTA.
President Maithripala Sirisena and Ranil Wickremasinghe are the reason for them to make this complaint, said Fr. Marimuthu Sakthivel, of the National Organization for release of political prisoners.
