Colombo Magistrate court today refused permission for MP Duminda Silva to two weeks-visit to Singapore for medical observations.
Silva had filed an application before Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage and asked that his passport be released to visit Mount Elizabeth hospital, Singapore where he was said to have underwent surgeries.
The court refused bail on two grounds that he had not forwarded medical reports with proper reasons and that he had been granted bail by the High Court.
Parliamentarian Duminda Silva is the eleventh suspect in the killing of former Presidential Advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra and three others at Mulleriyawa on the local government elections day on October 8, 2011. (Lakmal Suriyagoda)
