Irregularities in prisons can be reduced by examining and implementing new technological methods as done by foreign countries, Justice and Prison Reforms Minister Thalatha Atukorale said.

   
The minister said this during her recent inspection tour to the Changi Prison in Singapore. 


“The prison cells are made to safeguard the inmates. We hope to upgrade the prisons in Sri Lanka in a similar manner,” she said. 


Singaporean High Commissioner Nimal Weeraratne and C.N. Lokuhettige, Assistant Planning Director (Prisons Affairs) of the ministry accompanied the minister.
