Gnanasara Thera back to prison hospital

9 September 2018 06:33 pm - 14     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera, who was admitted to Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital (SJGH) following a complication in the area where a surgery was done, has been transferred back to the Welikada Prison Hospital, SJGH Director Dr. Susitha Senaratne said.

“The Thera was fit to transfer back to the Welikada Prison Hospital. I do not wish to disclose more details of his condition as it was not ethical to reveal such details to the media”  the director said.

The Thera, who was serving a 6-year prison sentence, was transferred to the Prisons Hospital on August 30 after undergoing surgery at the Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital. However, the Thera was again transferred to the SJGH on September 06 due to an allergic reaction.

Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera was convicted of four charges over Contempt of Court and sentenced by the Appeal Court to 19 years of rigorous imprisonment, to be completed within 6 years on August 08. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    I can’t believe the doctors made the right decision on this occasion sooner. What’s happening? Sri Lanka is going to be a heaven again?!

    Shuttling between two hospitals. A good chance to evaluate them and to see which one is better for longer stay........

    How many days actually did he really spend in a prison cell? Do all inmates have luxury of getting their medical done after being imprisoned? Hope the venerable gets better soon so that he can stay in his prison cell.

    Let's hope there is no more conniving with criminals by GMOA doctors, not only to give this man who is a disgrace to Buddhism a place at the SJGH, but also to keep him for 6 years in a hospital bed n the prison. He needs to live like any ordinary prisoner. Maybe he'll then come to his senses then.

    "Maybe he'll then come to his senses " Sorry sir - He is so insane that he does not have the ability to make intelligent decisions especially in everyday matters

    He should be given all the privileges and perks as given for a sick convict as permitted by the law on par with common convict. This would be a prelude to new comers as well, perhaps soon; either in current or past governments.

    Hope the jump suit fits him.

    Why is he not wearing a jumper? The law of the land should be applied same to all. If he is not wearing the jumper then Minister incharge of Prisons, Law
