Video: Duminda to undergo another surgery in S’pore

7 August 2012 05:53 am - 90     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Lawyer of MP Duminda Silva informed the Colombo Magistrate today that Mr.Silva would not be able to come to Sri Lanka for at least two months as he had to undergo another surgery in Singapore today.

President’s Counsel Hemantha Warnakulasuriya said former presidential adviser Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s daughter Hirunika was continuing to make media statements on the court and its proceedings.

He said she must stop this or else he would expose to the Court and the media the news items that appeared against Hirunika on websites.
Mr. Warnakulasuriya said Hirunika had asked the IGP to arrest Duminda Silva whom she alleged had come back to Sri Lanka. Because of this news item, media personnel had gathered at the airport to catch a glimpse of Duminda Silva.

CID officers Shani Abeysekera submitted that Duminda Silva’s statement had been sent to the Attorney General and he would respond to the CID very soon.

Colombo Additional Magistrate Prasanna De Alwis in his order on the contempt charges filed by Hemantha Warnakulasuriya PC observed that the Magistrate’s Court did not have jurisdiction to hear a contempt of court offence said to have been committed outside court. He dismissed the contempt charges against Hurunika Premachandra. The Magistrate said the parties can seek redress from the Court of Appeal against the dismissal. The suspects were remanded till June 21.(FT)

    Can any body tells the cost of his stay in this private hospital. who bears the cost. Why the opposition is silent regarding this. public needs answers for all the questions. Many people don't have money to get their basic medical requirement.

    Sonali De Silva Tuesday, 07 August 2012 01:38 PM

    Was he even shot in the first place? How could someone who was shot twice in the head at close range even survive?

    Ran banda Tuesday, 07 August 2012 01:29 PM

    Yes he qualifies ............ he has no brains

    raymond Tuesday, 07 August 2012 01:11 PM

    We don't want him as a frankenstein! Do we?

    jagath Tuesday, 07 August 2012 01:17 PM

    The Devil Tuesday, 07 August 2012 01:00 PM

    Vattakka Tuesday, 07 August 2012 12:50 PM

    Well, I don't believe this CID for a cent......corruptions and bad politics is ruining this country....there's no chance for truth in this country....everything is manipulated by everyone including responsible institutions and public is being mislead totally using their medias...

    TIKIRI GE KABARAGOYA Tuesday, 07 August 2012 12:32 PM

    Either way taxpayer will be paying this idiot's expenses, Earned through CHANDIKAMA and ministerial expenses claim, Which will not be revealed to the public. Mu merunanam hondai

    Vicks Tuesday, 07 August 2012 11:31 AM

    If he can take a plot of an Indian movie, he could fake his death and come back to Sri Lanka with that new identity. But, his action would expose him - Horses always kick!

    sizzler Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:57 AM

    Let the people who gives verdicts read your comment.

    IVJ Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:32 AM

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:39 AM

    Anarkali does not like this type of jokes.

    Thomas Ranger Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:00 AM

    Maybe just to remove whatever is still remaining.

    ASKYNICE Wednesday, 08 August 2012 04:12 PM

    Our country is injustice, corrupted and highly politicized courts system even educational system such as A/L, had never before.

    Andrew Pitugala Wednesday, 08 August 2012 11:31 AM

    He will have plastic surgery and return to Srilanka with a new face and name. He will then be a nominated MP and continue with his alleged notorious activities.

    Cynic Wednesday, 08 August 2012 10:34 AM

    Marry young.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 08 August 2012 08:50 AM

    The defence lawyer, whose "reputation" is known very well in the country, and his team are trying to draw red herrings with silly talk of "contempt of court" just to save the skin of the drug lord who is flushed with money and to impress the VIPs who are safeguarding the culprit. Dirty politics has crept into every sphere of life in this so called "Miracle of Asia"

    jayantha Wednesday, 08 August 2012 05:37 AM

    Sri Lanka is a democracy country free of speech . let every citizen enjoy the domocracy .
    but the truth will come out soon . hemantha is a sinner he know the truth but money talk , God will punish Hemantha we are waiting for that ...

    Prasanna Wednesday, 08 August 2012 05:05 AM

    Did u see him??

    Adrian Wednesday, 08 August 2012 05:01 AM

    When they mean shot in the head, do they mean shot in the back.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:20 AM

    You are absolutely right. Thus I would suggest her to marry Duminda without wasting public time on this issue. All problems sorted.

    john Wednesday, 08 August 2012 03:34 AM

    He w"ll come to country ,after the election is over

    DFF Wednesday, 08 August 2012 03:41 AM

    He came here for watch Alexandra stan live in concert

    senavi Wednesday, 08 August 2012 03:01 AM

    hopefully his condition is worse than death

    Ravi Wednesday, 08 August 2012 12:49 AM

    Did the judge says he need to see a doctors' report to prove that he needs more surgery not a paid lawyers' statement and why not?

    Sarneris Tuesday, 07 August 2012 11:33 PM

    and there are thousands of Sri Lankans dying just because they could not afford a life saving drug.

    Puran Tuesday, 07 August 2012 11:38 PM

    More likely. He never had one that was working anyway. Too much "KUDU"

    Rajinder A Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:03 PM

    What ? There is not a single commet that someone is feeling sorry about this fellow. So why is the country paying for a man like this ?

    KAF Tuesday, 07 August 2012 03:07 PM

    Wish him good luck for the surgery, may the surgeons be able to find brain, at least this time!
    (Now i know why some neuro-surgeon put on magnifying glasses......!)

    Mims Tuesday, 07 August 2012 02:45 PM

    This scoundrel will do anything to stay away from facing the music back home. He has been protected, and supported, from the regime, and is wasting tax payer's money wining and dining in Singapore. This is disgraceful.

    Renu Tuesday, 07 August 2012 02:19 PM

    General public want him punished, so whenever he is back with a brain or otherwise he should be punished

    S.Mhadwa Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:44 AM

    Akks, He has King's support

    Jack in the Box Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:15 AM

    Maybe he is to undergo a SEX change...

    Amarathunga Chandika Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:14 AM

    MR please tell your guys not to interfere with the Justice, our country has gone to dogs, the entire world is watching how you govern the nation. Very sad Mr.President.

    dilshan Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:56 AM

    wonder who is paying his hospital bills for the past few months? ... would have run into millions.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:10 AM

    Duminda cannot be hidden in this manner. You guys think that we are fools?

    Bikechain Bubbleband Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:07 AM

    It is clear that Govt. is trying to protect Duminda Silva. But very soon either good or bad, he has to face the verdict from the people of SriLanka for all his wrong doings.

    khan Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:59 AM

    Cap Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:52 AM

    I think he might have forgotten that he is one of the biggest drug dealers in SL, and he is a Thug.. but i guess he would have forgotten how to fight also by now the way his lawyers are saying that he has forgotten everything hahahha lol.. This is such hypocritical way of justice. if it was a normal middle class person do u think this would have been let to go this far?? this show's that we cannot trust our Forces, Govt, or even our Courts for Equal justice to be given to EVERY Human or person in our Country.. Feel soo sad for our Mother Land and where it will be ending in a few years time..

    IHM Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:47 AM

    Godagampala Rohana Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:17 AM

    We can even arrange Duminda Silva's body to be burried in Singapore soon, do you want it?

    Chris Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:42 AM

    Less problems for the country, so he better stay there forever.

    Lalindra J. Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:23 AM

    What is the enhanced security cover we see around the environs of the National Hospital with Regent Street completely closed again for normal traffic and traffic police stationed at every entrance?

    Jrsus Hypocrite Tuesday, 07 August 2012 07:21 AM

    Who care's about these guy's.. everyone talks about this dude ...worthless human..guy's comment on other things...which our country needs

    hard Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:19 AM


    Mr..Bean Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:32 AM

    Who is fooling whom? Whenever he is supposed to appear in the Courts, it seems the doctors in Singapore are arranging surgeries. There is somebody powerful behind this, otherwise why is it dragging in this manner.

    Ronny Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:06 AM

    The more that Duminda stays in Singapore the more the taxpayers loose.

    Cyclops Tuesday, 07 August 2012 10:03 AM

    No, that rumor was spread by the powers that be just to see the reaction of the people. Obviously it was not good news, so he stays back in Singapore to undergo another operation this time to make him dumb in the real sense of the word!!!

    Kalan Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:54 AM

    Yes, of course, we are fools. That's we elected these bloody politician. Anyway, when court call him, he will have operation. Not a surprise, or else he is in SL.

    Yehiya Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:49 AM

    No point of talking him. God punishment is the best. All know the end of judical system in Sri Lanka & duty of AG. Hirunikas father is valuable man for politics. My salute to him.

    Hussain Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:33 AM

    I like this woman's confidence!

    ravi Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:21 AM

    it's okay man.. we can pay even more.. please keep him there

    samntha Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:20 AM

    No need justice for this cheep lady, if she stands against the duminda why still licking kings back?? she knows that king support to duminda!!!

    hard Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:25 AM


    Sadarana_Kota Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:09 AM

    How many surgeries? he should be a vegetable by now for the number of surgeries he went through. if not we can call him R Duminda Miracle

    Nodrog Tuesday, 07 August 2012 06:03 AM

    Probably plastic surgery so he can return with a new identity.

    Sujeewa Devarani Tuesday, 07 August 2012 09:00 AM

    Maybe he changed his mind after Hirunika made a fuss about his coming down.And what a sharp tongue she has.

    Muheed Jeeran Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:58 AM

    It is a total cove up and truth will be come into light very soon. 21st Century Goliath also will face the same fate similar to the biblical story...

    Gane Tuesday, 07 August 2012 08:46 AM

    OK. We accept it. Bcz no one dare to mislead the court :D)
