Released TPPs taken back to prison

31 Tamil Political Prisoners (TPPs) who were today granted bail were taken back to prison again because there was no one to sign for them.

All 31 prisoners arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) had been granted bail after the Attorney General’s Department produced the required documents to Court.

However since no one appeared to post bail on behalf of the 31 suspects they were taken back to the Welikada prison and remanded.
