The Cabinet of Ministers has approved to pay compensation to victims killed during clashes at the Welikada Prison on the 9th of November, 2012.

A three member committee appointed to investigate the incident recommended providing a compensation of 2 million rupees each to 16 inmates who were killed in the clashes while the inmates who were injured in the riots will be granted Rs 500,000.

A total 26 inmates were involved in the clash reported in November 2012.

However, it was revealed that 11 inmates allegedly attempted to flee the prison premises during the brawl and the committee has recommended that those should not be given any compensation.
