Protect prisoners' rights - Hanaa Singer

United Nations Resident Coordinator Hanaa Singer responding to the alleged incident in the Anuradhapura Prison involving a State Minister stated that it is the duty of the State, as per the Mandela Rules, to protect the rights of prisoners.

“In our work on prison reform and drug rehabilitation the UN in Sri Lanka works to strengthen capacities to uphold the rights of all those in custody and condemns any ill treatment of prisoners,” she said in a Twitter message.
