Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today paid a visit to former Health Minister Tissa Attanayake, who was remanded on charges of forgery at the Welikada Prison Hospital.

Mr. Rajapaksa said he also visited a Navy soldier named Amaraweera in the prison.

“I was hoping to visit (Premalal) Jayasekara too but he has been taken to Kuruvita,” he told journalists outside the prison.  

When asked whether he was invited to the public forum to be held on February 18 in Nugegoda on fielding him as United Peoples Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Prime Ministerial candidate, Mr. Rajapaksa said he has not been invited.

“I just came from the home town. I haven’t received any information about such a meeting,” he said.

    Can a former President visit Welikada or other prisons like an MP? Is this privilege extended to former Presidents as well? Pl some one clarify.

    T Wickramaratna Monday, 09 February 2015 04:55 PM

    who will come to see you in the walikada!!

    but Tissa changed his colours before got arrested and moreover arrested for manipulating the masses. However re regretted publicly that his move to MR side was a big mistake and apologised. I ask myself then why MR is still visiting him in the prison?

    sach Monday, 09 February 2015 05:32 PM

    one reason he was voted out was his support for murderer in his camp. Even after defeat he continues his past priniciples of supporting murderers like he going to look after premalal jayasekara

    Grimes fairy tales.. Like everything else we are hearing these days!

    Kalpesh BC Monday, 09 February 2015 10:02 PM

    There is nobody there to help Tissa. MR cannot use his influence with the new CJ. Give another few weeks MR will be visiting Welikade on daily basis because most his partners in crime will be locked up there. What a change for MR.

    Imagine if it was the other way around i.e. if he had won, Maithripala would have been abducted in a white van or at worst, beaten up or dead.
