    When too many VIPs flocked the Prisons Hospital to see Basil, it was too much pressure on him. Either Basil is conning that he is sick or because of too many visitors made him sick.

    Basil never imagined his stay in Welikade. As usual VIPs go to hospital wing. MR must be boiling now. Who is next in the line go to Welikade. They should have realised all these when they were in power. MR treated Sarath fonseka badly and god is now punishing Rajapakses.

    That was quick. Wonder whether the visitor got there before the inmate.

    Has any UNP minister ever gone to jail????

    Ken Thursday, 23 April 2015 02:25 PM

    Only General Fonseka stayed in the cell in Welikada like a caged Lion despite his genuine health problems.

    cyril n Thursday, 23 April 2015 02:37 PM

    Understandable but may be he can ke company there eventually.

    Rajapashas treated war hero Fonseka dirtily. Now they receive treatment according to law not wild law as before. Tolerate !

    Chama Thursday, 23 April 2015 02:58 PM

    I am sure MR will not visit him....

    malkan Thursday, 23 April 2015 03:07 PM
