Former First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa today visited her son Yoshitha at the Welikada Prison with his meals after he declined the meals provided by the Prison.

The five suspects including Yoshitha Rajapaksa, remanded on charges of financial irregularities at the CSN, had declined to consume the meals since Monday.

A prison official said they had been granted permission to obtain all three meals from home.

    If the VAT culprits were fed special meals by the leading bookies of Colombo and kept in Super luxury remand quarters, why not the others. These commentators know nothing of what happens in our prisons but love to throw stones at anybody

    ditta dhamma vedeniya karmaya.....Shiranthi, do you remember Anoma visiting SF in Prison?

    What sort of a prison is this? Nowhere in the world do you get preferential treatment for some prisoners. The reason of sending someone to prison is to punish and rehabilitate the person for all his wrong doings. Normally visitors are searched and not allowed to take anything when visiting inmates.

    they did not allow Sarath Fonseka to have meal from home while he was in prison. MR family must be thankful to Yahapalana

    There are no special prisoners, and all of them have been sentenced under the same law and should go through the same rigors of the specified punishment.

    I remember how the winner of the presidential election, Gen. Sarath Fonseka was treated. I feel no pity for anyone in that regime. May they reap what they sowed.

    Former 1st lady will now know how the mothers of the other prisoners feel about their sons.

    Did Sarath Fonseka got the same treatments?

    Cheap tactics to evoke sympathy. THey still think they are some special family who owns srilanka.

    What a pitiful sight. Son seems to have not lost the appetite. These are the fellows claiming to represent ordinary people. The accused lady of some corrupt practices must be thinking what is next. Perhaps this is a good rehearsal.

    Nothing would have happened if they had in their mind that "When you hump too high, the fall is great".

    She has to take responsibility for bringing up her children without values. We saw how they assaulted Rugby referees while she was watching in the audience.

    ok that means other prisioner gets expired meal everyday. Other prisoners should be trated well. Money and dirty power works here. All should be treated in same manner

    Chanaka Thursday, 04 February 2016 04:19 PM

    Why did she not join the line like other ordinary people? Are they extraordinary???

    Coconut Republic Thursday, 04 February 2016 04:32 PM

    She is a former 1st lady , if she joins the queue becomes last lady!

    SF was sentenced so he has no right to get home made meals, but yositha is in remand and not yet sentenced so he can have his home made meals until he is proven guilty.
