    I think the right thing to do here is to cancel license to import and sell medicines of this company. Mere punishment of some workers or officials will not save poor patients. People are already suffering from strikes of health workers. I could not believe dragging issue between doctors and nurses regarding a room in Kandy hospital? Those nurses should have been kicked out for trying to disgrace the doctors.

    what do you expect from a poor third world country and its low moral citizens

    Please lock up these bastards and throw away the key.

    This is a big crime and these guys should be punished and put behind bars.

    What a world. This is sad.

    Andrew Pitugala Friday, 06 December 2013 02:43 AM

    That is attempted murder !!!!
    Punishment should match the crime.

    Prof Hemantha Wickra Thursday, 05 December 2013 01:54 PM

    This is a serious crime - it amounts to even killing patients and they should not be granted bail and even deserves death sentence. Lets wish there is no politicos involved and that it will fizzle out like the Tangalle rape case
