Johnston claims they were targeted, stripped naked inside prison

MP Johnston Fernando alleges that the two officials who were remanded along with him were stripped naked in front of all inmates in the prison.

He made these statements joining a press conference held in Colombo, yesterday (18).

Stating that he had to suffer through various difficulties during his
time in prison, MP Fernando accuses that they were all under the orders of the government.

Fernando stated that this was carried out by a group from Colombo sent by the Minister of Justice Thalatha Athukorale.

He says that the former Sathosa Chairman and a Ministry Secretary were disrobed in this manner by even ignoring their human rights.
