President GR has signed a gazette notification to set up a new detention centre in Colombo to detain people arrested under the PTA act.
It was learnt that No 145, Kirulapana Avenue, Colombo 5 is declared as a centre for detention since all the government detention centres filled with COVID regulation violators.
Recently, the government stepped in to arrest social media activities that critical of the administration. Setting up this new facility indicates the GR regime’s plan to control its critiques and rule with an iron fist.
