National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa’s daughter was admitted to the Lady Ridgeway Hospital yesterday evening, hospital sources said.

It was reported that she had refused her food, after Mr. Weerawansa began a hunger strike on Wednesday.

According to sources, she was admitted to the Ragama Hospital last morning and later transferred to the Lady Ridgeway Hospital. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    The father has taught her well. Waiting for it to be a family affair.

    PLOY Friday, 24 March 2017 01:33 PM

    Could well be a PLOY for WW to stop his fast - knowing very well he has no sympathy and no one will come forward to stop it. Any way charge him for contempt of court

    How we treat wimal is a crime. Can you find any state official or parliamentarians in any country who hasn't used state vehicles for private use at least once

    There are thousands for lesser offences, what if they too do the same thing. Let Law take it's own turn without any interference or influence.

    He's still got his remote control device!Reminds me of the man who took French leave and said he couldn't come to work as his mother died when she was actually hail and hearty and even prepared his packet of lunch!!!

    VJ Friday, 24 March 2017 02:30 PM

    She might accept some lemon puff?

    this cheap politico has stooped so low that he even uses his daughter for his political purposes

    Lord Wolfstein Friday, 24 March 2017 08:16 AM

    It is difficult for the daughter to accept that her own father is a criminal. But that's life.

    welcome to politics!

    des Friday, 24 March 2017 09:08 AM

    Child don't act unwisely. If you want to live in a civilised nation allow justice. Sad it has to be your father, but justice will prevail. So rise up and eat. Going to hospital is a waste of public funds when you deliberately fall sick. You are still young and do not understand much. Be strong and do what is right for yourself and be wiser than your family members. Be the example to all of them. This is your opportunity to shine. Face the future with courage!

    Fasting is better,can save the food for the haven't for tomorrow.

    ralahamy Friday, 24 March 2017 10:37 AM

    This guy and the joint opposition have become so bankrupt, now they are trying to win the case through public sympathy. They all think that after all, it is public money so why punish anybody. They think they have a right to swindle the nation.

    loui Friday, 24 March 2017 10:52 AM

    Child Care Authorities must come into action. A child this young should not be allowed to be influenced by her family to do what is not good for her own health. Please take action and hold the parents responsible.

    commando695 Saturday, 25 March 2017 12:00 PM

    So ...Lady Ridgeway Hospital ..govt hospitals are not good enough for her !

    MP Friday, 24 March 2017 06:17 PM

    Very good comment.

    Perumal Friday, 24 March 2017 11:31 AM

    Sashi still eats, doesn't she?

    Sincere Friday, 24 March 2017 07:23 PM

    How many daughters of prisoners are refusing to eat today because their fathers have committed various crimes? Not just one!

    alex Friday, 24 March 2017 11:47 AM

    Well composed drama well trained actors. Part I was played sometime back in which this child was lying by his side and crying to gain sympathy until MR kneels down by him and let him drink coconut water. In Part II child goes on hunger strike too. This is trained cheating.Father cheated people's property,mother cheated Govt.by possessing two passports etc. Mystery deaths of strangers at home etc.Can you expect anything better from these children brought up under these conditions.

    Art Friday, 24 March 2017 11:50 AM

    Gen. Fonseka was falsely accused, arrested and put behind bars. Eventually the same govt. released him! Here, the case is he is guilty, really guilty. So the comparison is groundless.

    ravin Friday, 24 March 2017 12:33 PM

    What ever the political ideology, if anyone uses underage children for their stupidities, they must be treated as murders.

    upul Arunajith Saturday, 25 March 2017 09:04 PM

    Ha ha...so this will be the trend. Committ all the crime conceivable and swindle the tax dollars and when caught start a fast unto death. Dude good trend. Regretably this is not the way the real world works. The judgement day will come and you will be made to pay every penny stole and end up as stray dogs for misleading your own child to start hunger strike to savage a father who is found to be a wrongdoer.

    alston Friday, 24 March 2017 06:26 AM

    Good example for all the convicted to follow demanding release. These are dramas in real life.

    gafa Friday, 24 March 2017 01:05 PM

    may be she do not get better things to eat like those days, what a drama?

    gafa Friday, 24 March 2017 01:08 PM

    so in this case all accuse family can fast to death and get release there people.

    RD Friday, 24 March 2017 06:46 AM

    This is really pathetic. From now on all criminals (and their siblings) would go on hunger strike seeking a relief from punishments they received for crimes they commited.

    Ajith Friday, 24 March 2017 06:53 AM

    I feel sorry for you. Ideally children should not pay for their parents' crimes. But it happens. Said that, you all enjoyed his ill-gotten wealth while he was in power. You never thought this will ever happen to you. At least now lead a good life. Else, your children also will suffer one day in future. I wish you peace.

    Bala Friday, 24 March 2017 06:54 AM

    What nonsensical drama is the Weerawanse family enacting to get publicity. Surely by these actions the judiciary or the govt will not be moved.
