Mrs.Shyamalawathie Wijesundaram, 25, held in the Welikade prison gave birth to a boy on May 6 at the Colombo General Hospital. She was admitted to the hospital by the prison officials after labour pain started.

Mrs.Shyamalawathie Wijesundaram was arrested on 31 October 1997 by the Vavuniya Police. At the time of her arrest she was two months pregnant.

Shyamalawathie's husband lost one of his feet in a anti- personnel land mine explosion. He is among the Tamil prisoners being held now in the new remand prison at Kalutara.

Shyamalawathie's one and a half year old child lives with her old parents in Vavuniya and has not seen her since she was arrested.
