Minister Mervin Silva said today that in future he would not accuse anyone of anything without knowing the proper facts.

Speaking during the condolence vote on Dr. JayalathJayawardene, the minister said the late MP was accused of taking money from various peopleand he was called many names.

However he said his family was finding it difficult to pay the hospital bills in Singapore and the undertaker’s bill.

“We accuse people of things without knowing the facts but it is too late nowto do anything except to regret what was said,” he said

The minister described Dr. Jayawardane as a soldier who made many sacrifices for others. (YP)

    JKJ Saturday, 22 June 2013 06:43 AM

    Too little too late! It's usually the usual experience we, most of us face in this world.

    Kiwi Saturday, 22 June 2013 01:30 AM

    For once he has come out with some sense.

    Dilip Friday, 21 June 2013 04:49 PM

    Why don't you go and tell him that in person. Small correcton, you accuse people without knowing the fact and not WE.

    ANTON Saturday, 22 June 2013 01:36 AM

    MEKA KATAK NEMEY, PADIKKAMAK.

    The joke of the year!

    Francis Friday, 21 June 2013 05:53 PM

    This position will be for the interim until the disciplinary report is disposed off. Another bloody scoundrel

    Rohan Saturday, 22 June 2013 02:32 AM

    Please go to the Buffalo barn where you came from. It is you kind of thugs who ruined our country.

    fool Saturday, 22 June 2013 03:08 AM

    At least the truth. must make in public pardon. In Sri_Lanka politics so bad..

    LOL! Saturday, 22 June 2013 12:00 AM

    Seems like the minister's got his brains working now! via DM Android App

    srn Saturday, 22 June 2013 08:56 AM

    We can import some doctors from Singapore if our Doctors are not qualified enough. It's time for the politicians to think about to give the benefits to the people and for themselves.

    Chaminda Tilakumara Friday, 21 June 2013 07:59 PM

    If all the politicians sold their luxury or paid their due tax, paid their electricity bills, maybe we can perhaps spend that money on improving our hospitals and the health system so that the rest of us can have a decent health service and no one would need to go to Singapore inc politicians. Can somebody like you comprehend all this?

    Ratavasiya Friday, 21 June 2013 08:00 PM

    Yes, this is only one isssue , you will repent for many things in future. Better be good atleast now.

    sach Saturday, 22 June 2013 04:09 PM

    No he did .....

    Srimevan Saturday, 22 June 2013 05:24 PM

    Does Mervyn's vibe correspond to his earlier statement "Gotabhaya Rajapaksa a great king"

    Tamil Canadian Friday, 21 June 2013 08:57 PM

    OMG did he have a Divine Vision?

    AJ-DXB Saturday, 22 June 2013 12:00 AM

    was Dr's last comments slipped from his tongue after knowing d facts? via DM Android App

    Roy Saturday, 22 June 2013 04:54 AM

    One should have brains to know proper facts. Please bare with me the Doctors.

    kapa ta pissu Sunday, 23 June 2013 06:43 AM

    His tounge is wasted for the way he sucks up MAHARAJA

    Lal.Fernando. Friday, 21 June 2013 09:57 PM

    Mervyn Silva is not a respectable, educated politician.He does not know what he is talking about.Lets see for how long he is going to keep his mouth shut when not needed.

    Ram Perera Friday, 21 June 2013 10:07 PM

    Dr JJ did not make money like some of the other politicians. who live in "Palaces" today. Some politicians who live in Palaces today did not have GCE OL or even a bicycle to ride when they entered Parliament. Some others have amassed wealth by going after politicians. This is the "Miracle of Asia"

    you and your clever talk good for nothing

    Hadi Friday, 21 June 2013 10:19 PM

    Habit is second nature.

    Nadi Karunaratne Saturday, 22 June 2013 05:17 AM

    Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks.

    Observer Friday, 21 June 2013 10:24 PM

    Good lesson for every one! Finally there's a light at the end........

    Muthu Friday, 21 June 2013 10:30 PM

    He has spoken some sense, I think for the first time. This may be because Dr. Jayawardana is connected to him.

    C.K.Lankaputhra Friday, 21 June 2013 10:41 PM

    Can a fox be without hooting.

    shamindra jayatunge Friday, 21 June 2013 10:40 PM

    Most probably JJ would have spent all his money made out of commissions to his neferious activities.
    There is no difference between Mervyn Silva and JJ

    Lanka Silva Friday, 21 June 2013 10:41 PM

    Moron- again.

    Harry Saturday, 22 June 2013 07:59 PM

    You can't teach old dog new tricks!

    netizen Friday, 21 June 2013 11:21 PM

    It's never too late to teach an old dog new tricks.

    Ruwan Friday, 21 June 2013 11:34 PM

    He should hold his breath and drop dead including his dirty smelly disgusting tongue.
