There will be changes in key positions of the prison authorities within next few days, the Prison Reforms Minister has stated.
Prison Reforms Minister D.M. Swaminathan predicted that key positions would be reshuffled in all the prisons across the country.
The Minister made the observation during an inspection tour at the Negombo prison which came into the spotlight earlier this week after four inmates escaped from custody.
Swaminathan also pointed out the officials of the Negombo prison should take the full responsibility in connection with the escape of inmates.
