Colombo, Sri Lanka (CNN) -- When 58-year-old G. Siripala, a Sri Lankan prisoner serving a 10-year sentence for theft, was escorted by armed prison officials to Colombo's National Hospital with severe back pain, doctors rushed him for an X-ray.

Doctors thought he might have orthopaedic complications, a source familiar with the matter told CNN. "But the X-ray showed a cell phone and two hands-free kits."

Medical staff prepared to carry out a surgical procedure on the prisoner, the source said.

"However, the man said 'Sir, sir, please give me a moment.' He coughed, wriggled, shrugged his muscles and the items fell on the ground," the source said.

The awkward incident reveals how Sri Lanka's prison officials discovered the latest round of phone smuggling into the high security Welikade Prison, in the northern sector of the capital, Colombo.

The prisoner explained his situation to the doctors, recounting how had been chatting on the cell phone with a relative when prison officials carried out a surprise check on his ward, the source said.

"He had no place to hide it. So he thrust it in his rectum together with the two hands-free kits," he said of the prisoner.

At nighttime, to avoid detection, the prisoners cover themselves with a bed sheet, hide the phone near the body and use the hands free kit, the source added.

Siripala's undoing came when the person he had been speaking to rang back. The ringing tone came from his back and prison officials grabbed him, the source said.

The prisoner alleges he was beaten by prison guards, causing the back pain that resulted in his trip to hospital and subsequent X-ray.

Reminds me of the scene where the guy in Total Recall gets a call from the phone in his hand. It'd be a little harder to answer in your arse.

History repeats


7 Prisoners Have Surgery To Remove Cellphones Stuck “Up There”

37 prisoners in a Pakistan jail were caught hiding cellphones inside their bodies—presumably their rectums. And for 30 of said prisoners, life continued as normal once the phones were removed. But for an unlucky 7, those stuffing themselves with smartphones, nature couldn't take its course. So they underwent surgery.Upon discharge (the prisoners from the hospital, not the cellphones from the butts), the prisoners will be moved to special punishment cells for their actions. And it just goes to show, while push email sure is nice and Wi-Fi browsing can come in handy, it's all no replacement for a good sit. [dialaphone]

How hard would it be to just install a cell signal blocker in the jail. Its simple, inexpensive and would stop this if they should choose to. Also these can and should be used in theatres.

I'm fairly sure my Samsung wouldn't fit, and I'm not going to find out. :laugh:

And as long as the public isn't paying for the cell phone, I don't see the harm of inmates having them.

Unless it would lead to fights, stabbings, etc.
