Former Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa who was remanded till May 5, was transferred to the Prison Hospital last night, officials said.

The Kaduwela Magistrate ordered the Prison Commissioner to transfer Mr. Rajapaksa after lawyers informed him that Mr. Rajapaksa required medical observation due to his health condition.

Sources said that, former Secretary of the Economic Development Ministry Nihal Jayatilake and former Divineguma Fund Director General R.R.K. Ranawaka were also transferred to the Prison hospital.

    it is sad day for the VOTERS... why is that ALL politicians who are arrested accommodated at the Prison Hospital? Was the Field Marshal given these privileges?

    Fayad Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:31 PM

    Politicians get sick when they enter the prison as soon as they leave the prison they get well immediately

    Gobba Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:34 PM

    Lock them all up and THROW AWAY THE KEYS. They never understood or practiced DEMOCRACY during their rule, so they dont deserve any humane treatment now.

    Rife Thursday, 23 April 2015 09:43 AM

    as expected......these politicians fool their own people saying patriotic things but actually they have made a multimillion dollar fortune fooling uneducated SL Citizens

    Mental hospital?

    Anver Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:41 PM

    The privileged people who robbed the country get to stay in prison hospitals. The rest of suspects will be rotten in the prison sell.

    Meera Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:43 PM

    Did he come all the way to SL from US to admit at a hospital?No good hospitals in USA?

    Concerned citizen Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:47 PM

    Looks like its a disease that spreads and the other 2 also got it from Basil. How stupid do they think we are to believe all this nonsense?

    Lilamani Thursday, 23 April 2015 10:19 AM

    very true...!! What goes around comes around..

    Raizuh Langai Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:57 PM

    The learned magistrate should have instructed the hospital authorities to check, Blood Pressure, Temperature and Blood for any medical condition and if found nothing wrong to imprison them. This all takes maximum 6 hours. Otherwise the system is unjust for the other prisoners.

    dulan Thursday, 23 April 2015 04:20 PM

    This is says all 3 in hospital. This is irresponsible

    Robin Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:58 PM

    Oh the parliament is a 5 star hotel thanks to JR and the clan

    GC Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:07 PM

    They should bring the Prison Hospital to be like a prison to prevent this. But then, where can the next lot who govern now go?

    paul Thursday, 23 April 2015 10:33 AM

    Looks like the past government has been full of patients!

    kan Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:08 PM

    Hard earned money will never make you a diseased person but ill-gotten wealth will make you sick whole life and for many generations to come. This is proved with live examples.

    Shan Thursday, 23 April 2015 10:34 AM

    Why not making the Parliament a Hospital, where all the members seem to be sick

    cyril n Thursday, 23 April 2015 10:40 AM

    It is clear all these politicians and their affiliates are all with sick minds that is why rob the public and still act innocent.

    Always a Patient Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:26 PM

    On what grounds do all these clowns get transferred to the Prison Hospital. The judicial system is just a big joke in this country. Same Shit Different Day People!!!

    Upali Senewiratne Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:27 PM

    MR should have built a 5star hospital within the prison as as he should have known that most of his Kith and Kin was ending up there once his reign was over.

    Veda-mama Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:33 PM

    WHAT KIND OF DOCTORS AND HOSPITAL U.S. HAS. SRI LANKAN DOCTORS CAN DETECT A SERIOUS INFLUENTIAL PATIENT BY JUST LOOKING AT THEM.

    Premalal Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:35 PM

    Maybe he returned to get treatment from the prison hospital.

    CITIZEN Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:47 PM

    He so gallantly and with full-fitness of health walked into the FCID Office. How he suddenly fell ill is the "Billion $ Question"!

    Arun Vincent Thursday, 23 April 2015 01:55 PM

    Why he was denied bail. If he comes back to power the magistrate who refused bail would go on missing in a white van.

    ranjit jayaweera bandara Thursday, 23 April 2015 05:27 PM

    malingering is the name of this syndrome which all politicians succumb to when remanded .

    Narayan Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:04 PM

    Even the common public should request them to transfer to prison hospital to monitor health. Can someone put an earthquake to the prison hospital?

    Veda-mama Thursday, 23 April 2015 12:26 PM

    WONDER OF SRI LANKA.....OUR DOCTORS ARE CAPABLE OF DIAGNOSING HIDDEN SERIOUS SICKNESSES OF INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN REMAND WHO NEEDS IMMEDIATE HOSPITALISATION.
