United National Party (UNP) MP Jayalath Jayawardene together with the Ven. Dambara Amila Thera and Mannar Bishop Rt. Rev. Dr. Rayappu Joseph are to visit the LTTE detainees at the Welikada prisons tomorrow to provide them with a Christmas treat
Dr. Jayawardene said he had decided to do so because their family members were unable to visit them during the festive season.
“Prisoners are usually allowed to meet their kith and kin for Christmas or Vesak but these Tamil detainees have been unable to meet their loved ones because they are mostly from Mullaitivu, Jaffna and Kilinochchi areas. Therefore I decided to visit them be and give them a treat,” he said.
