Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya appearing for MP Duminda Silva said yesterday that medical specialists treating Mr. Silva are in a predicament how his client is surviving with his head injury.

The counsel producing a plastic skull in Colombo Magistrate court said that some parts of his client’s skull had been badly damaged due to gun shots. “Some of bullets embedded in the skull cannot be removed by surgery. However even the specialists are in a predicament how his client is surviving with the injury,” he said.

    The real predicament is the Counsel's. He is not sure how long can he support this "FICTION"!

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 17 October 2012 07:17 AM

    Of course, we are also baffled beyond belief as to how a murder suspect was whisked away from the country to spend time in a luxurious hospital in Singapore with neither Police, CID nor the Courts wanting to touch him, and on top of it enjoying paid leave from the Parliament for indefinite periods. This truly must be the Miracle of Asia where only the brainless can survive.

    Rom Wednesday, 17 October 2012 12:19 PM

    You need to highly recomend how the system works well for those in power and not for the ordinary citizens!!!!!!!!

    Maheshwaran Appu Wednesday, 17 October 2012 12:32 PM

    If the bullet entered through the back side, his brain might have been damaged.

    Ruwan Wednesday, 17 October 2012 07:30 AM

    Not only the specialists. Even we are in a predicament so as to know how all these politicians can survive in this country even after every1 knows how stupid they are.

    Hiru-nika Wednesday, 17 October 2012 07:24 AM

    May he be recovered fast, to join our campaign rallies!
    Now only I am alone...

    kalum Oman Wednesday, 17 October 2012 12:43 PM

    No one trust this statement. Once he said that silva may be next Education Minister as per his thinking

    Sonali De Silva Wednesday, 17 October 2012 12:55 PM

    I have said this many a times. How does one even survive a gun shot wound in the head (not one but two) at close range? Was he shot with an air gun? Its more than a predicament, its beyond comprehension.

    CHANDANA RAJAPAKSE Thursday, 18 October 2012 01:55 AM

    It doesnt matter Pay his salaries and approve leave.

    Lanka Lion - Sydney Wednesday, 17 October 2012 01:06 PM

    No wonder Sri lanka is called the "Miracle of Asia" because of all these mysterious things that are taking place in this tiny island which is beyond comprehension to the ordinary human brain which is quite baffling indeed.

    sanju de silva Wednesday, 17 October 2012 08:09 AM

    only the good die young

    Anil Wednesday, 17 October 2012 08:27 AM

    Lawyers, What a terrible profession. They do anything for money.

    rehan Wednesday, 17 October 2012 02:16 PM

    can v see video or pictures of duminda pls, pls pls

    chris perera Wednesday, 17 October 2012 02:45 PM

    shame on the counsel appearing

    `Rufus Randeniya Wednesday, 17 October 2012 03:25 PM

    To kill a politico, aim at the pot belly but never at the brain or heart which they don't have.

    Marikkar Wednesday, 17 October 2012 04:07 PM

    This is nothing,but a miracle and wonder of Asia!

    nalaka Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:15 AM

    because his destiny to go in to jail in future under a defferent gov

    mj Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:18 AM

    he's surviving because he's got no brain to damage or it was so small that all the bullets must have missed it :P

    frank hilary Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:21 AM

    If Duminda's injury is beyond medical perception, is it a FICTION ?

    Gadzooks Wednesday, 17 October 2012 04:21 PM

    Yes.

    thusitha Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:36 AM

    coz nothing happend to him and he has no brain inside

    Chams Wednesday, 17 October 2012 10:38 AM

    I think we should highly commend the SL medical experts who took care of Duminda before he was flown in to Singapore. If my memory serves me right, he was in SL around a week. If the damage was so bad, he survives because of medical experts and facilities we have in Sri Jayawardanepura hospital.

    Rahmathullah M. H. Wednesday, 17 October 2012 10:46 AM

    May be he has bullet proof metal brain and not normal human brain. That's why he behaves inhumane.

    Another of the miracles ?? via DM Android App

    OZ Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:49 AM

    he is surviving because he got hit in the one part where he cannot be injured

    michael Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:45 AM

    Maybe because most parts of his brain arent in use?

    pramo Wednesday, 17 October 2012 10:46 AM

    They shot the wrong emty head,they should have shot his bum because he sit on his brain

    ash Wednesday, 17 October 2012 04:37 PM

    Our Judges will believe anything... Man tying himself, Major of the army intelligence unit was in shock, Dumindas brain is in his backside.... so on and on and on

    jiggy Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:49 AM

    without a brain you cant get brain damage, that is why your client survived.

    radish.S Wednesday, 17 October 2012 10:55 AM

    Of course Sri Lankan politicians of his calibre can survive under any condition.

    Bale Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:52 AM

    We are in a predicament as to why his parliamentary seat is still available to him!

    Dr. Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:05 AM

    It clearly shows that he was not using his head even before the shooting. Simple logic!

    Just Another Citizen Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:04 AM

    That's nothing, most of us wonder how he functions without a brain.

    senavi Wednesday, 17 October 2012 04:54 PM

    hopefully what he says is true hopefully he recover and become quadriplegic

    Anura Wednesday, 17 October 2012 12:00 AM

    I won't be surprised, tomorrow if he says, I shot myself. via DM Android App

    Jagath Wednesday, 17 October 2012 05:56 PM

    This is how poor tax payers money spend to save one drug dealers's life.
    Wonder of the world!

    perumal Thursday, 18 October 2012 05:41 AM

    Poor Doctors! They need not be in such a predicament. They can just do him in so everyone will be out of predicament.

    K.V.Wajira Hemantha Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:27 AM

    How Duminda is Surviving !!! Ohh my god...Whole country knows the secret......

    Gamaraala Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:27 AM

    He has to suffer a little bit more I guess.

    shaib Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:40 AM

    its happen only in srilanka,He survives without brain.WONDER OF ASIA.

    Ashraf Nazim Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:50 AM

    Duminda surviving despite the seriousness of the injury as explained in your "medical explanation" is nothing but MIRACLE OF ASIA.

    Nadi Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:42 AM

    Do you ever get the feeling that people are not being entirely frank about things?

    Dayasiri Totta baba. Thursday, 18 October 2012 06:09 AM

    Any way, any thing would happened to any body like these goons are not a problem to us. we know the characters of both rabbits.
    But see. at present days mr. hemantha is as appearing for both Malaka and this Chap's cases. I think this kind of money eager should refused from the society.
    basically lawyers do any thing for money rather general public. but this fellow pretend and shout for general public, rules and regulations, ethics,patriotism, etc. A HUGE LIAR.

    Dham Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:50 AM

    It's proved majoraty of MP's do't have a brain.

    Sin and Hope Wednesday, 17 October 2012 06:55 AM

    If Dumida Silva has been hit so severely, how is it that he appears to be so fine and fit in a gymnasium in a photograph taken recently? How is it that he had walked to the Prime Minister's bed to great him when he was warded in the same hospital some months ago? The government says, he has no memory. How then did Duminda know and recognise the PM? Very fishy.

    shan Wednesday, 17 October 2012 07:01 AM

    we see a lot of drama in politics but this is the best of the best............. but still sad to note that this does not transcend to our movie industry................ we still do average movies..............
