Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa was admitted to the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the Colombo National Hospital a short while ago, hospital sources said.
Mr. Rajapaksa had earlier requested the authorities that he be transferred from the Prisons Hospital to a Merchant Ward at the CNH.
Accordingly, he was admitted to the Number 15 Merchant Ward of the Hospital through the Out Patient Department (OPD), the National Hospital sources said.
The former Economic Development Minister was remanded till May 5 along with ministry’s former Secretary Nihal Jayatilake and former Divineguma Fund Director General R.R.K. Ranawaka by the Kaduwela Magistrate on Wednesday night.
They were all later transferred to the Prisons Hospital from where Mr. Rajapaksa was admitted to the CNH. (Lahiru Pothmulla and Sanath Desmond)

How come he fell sick so suddenly. He appeared hale and hearty on arrival at Katunayake airport full of smiles. Mahinda Rajapaksa once said he ready to sit on the electric chair. But he is now afraid eve to give evidence at the Bribery Commissioners office. That is a shame for the Rajapaksa family who thought they can carry on till thy kingdom comes to earth.

What a patriotic citizen. He comes from a foreign country all the way to Sri Lanka to be treated at the government hospital.

The uneducated Basil wanted secrecy regarding the DIVI Neguma fund and no member was suspicious?
