Minister in his own high tech jam


Transport Minister Mahinda Amaraweera, has become the victim of new measures he initiated to jam mobile phone conversati­ons in prisons.

The Hambantota District Angunukola­pelassa prison is one such case. His private residence is located close to the prison area.

The installati­on of jamming equipment meant that he could not use his own mobile phone.

Not until he discovered a spot where the mobile phone signals were good enough to dial out. So, he went there, made the calls, and returned.
