Sri Lankan President and War Criminal Gotabaya Rajapaksa has appointed an advisory board to make recommendations and advise him on the investigation, release, granting of bail and future action related to the persons imprisoned under the notorious Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

Former Chief Justice Ashoka de Silva chairs the three-member advisory board, and the other members are retired High Court Judge A.A.R. Heiyanthuduwa and former Solicitor General Suhada Gamlath. 

“Hitherto, the persons who have been imprisoned had no opportunity to make representations on their rights since an Advisory Board has not been established for a long time,” the Presidential Media Division (PMD) said in a statement.
