Special protection is being given to Gampola Vidanage Samantha Kumara alias Wele Suda, sentenced to death by the Colombo high court, at his cell at Welikada Prison, says a prison spokesman.
Prison officers are barred from having any personal meetings with him.
After the ruling on October 14, he was brought to the cell under special security around 2.00 pm, and was sent to a cell at C-3 building of Welikada Prison’s Chapel Ward.
Prisons chief Rohana Pushpakumara visited him and gave instructions to the officials.
Wele Suda is in prison facing death sentence four years after he was released on bail in 2011.
