* Main opposition party of Sri Lanka seeks a parliamentary debate on Welikada Prison riot report
Mon, Jan 20, 2014, 08:52 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 20, Colombo: Sri Lanka's main opposition United National Party (UNP) says it will seek a parliamentary debate of the report on the Welikada Prison riot in 2012.

UNP parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella said the government should table the report in parliament and allow a discussion on it.

The three member commission appointed to probe the prison massacre that resulted in the death of 27 inmates has reportedly stated that the prisoners, who were armed with the weapons stolen from prison armory, were killed by themselves.

According to the UNP MP, the government should not be allowed to conceal the report and the "ridiculous" comments in the report should be challenged.

The Welikada Prison riot report is to be submitted to President Mahinda Rajapaksa as well.
