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.
