No hand sanitizers for prisoners

Prison inmates are no longer permitted to use hand sanitizer.
The decision has been reached by prison authorities after two Iranian inmates at the Colombo Remand Prison died from consuming hand sanitizer.
Prisons Commissioner and Spokesperson Chandana Ekanayake has told media that inmates will be provided with soap instead.
However, prisoners are permitted to use hand sanitizer under exceptional circumstances, under the supervision of prison officers.
