Former Member of Parliament Mano Ganeshan says he is gathering data to file a complaint with the UN Human Rights Council regarding the recent riot at the Welikada prison.

Ganeshan told to the Colombo media that during the riot serious human rights violations had reportedly taken place. He said the Prisons Department had violated the guidelines given by the Sri Lanka Human Rights Commission when the riot broke out. Ganeshan said that an investigation must be carried out on the actions of the police Special Task Force and the Army during the riot.
