SL signs prisoner exchange agreements with four countries


Sri Lanka has recently signed prisoner exchange agreements with four countries.

The agreements will come into effect with returning 22 Pakistani detainees to their country of origin, Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms Minister Chandrasiri Gajadeera.

Sri Lanka had inked Memorandums of Understanding with Pakistan, India, the Maldives and the United Kingdom.

“As the first phase of the exchange, Sri Lanka will release 22 prisoners from Pakistan. They will be returned step by step once the papers are processed. Regulations call for the prisoners to be sent back too at a time that is how we will proceed”, the Minister said.
