Basil at National Hospital

Former Minister Basil Rajapaksa was admitted to the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the Colombo National Hospital a short while ago, hospital sources said.   

Mr. Rajapaksa had earlier requested the authorities that he be transferred from the Prisons Hospital to a Merchant Ward at the CNH.

Accordingly, he was admitted to the Number 15 Merchant Ward of the Hospital through the Out Patient Department (OPD), the National Hospital sources said.

The former Economic Development Minister was remanded till May 5 along with ministry’s former Secretary Nihal Jayatilake and former Divineguma Fund Director General R.R.K. Ranawaka by the Kaduwela Magistrate on Wednesday night.

They were all later transferred to the Prisons Hospital from where Mr. Rajapaksa was admitted to the CNH. (Lahiru Pothmulla and Sanath Desmond)
