FALSE EXCUSES TO PARDON Thursday, 30 August 2018 12:17 PM
Public should be made aware why he is put into hospital. Is it as a favour due to the yellow robe ? - interested parties to call for this under the rights to information act. _ BEWARE this could be ruse to build up a case with false sympathy as an excuse for the president (to fall back on) to release the fellow. SHAME on the president if he does so. - don't forget the world is watching

Is he an important person in Sri Lanka to cover his news.If he is a convict he should be in Prison only

Considering that he is after a (minor) surgery you might keep him for a few days at the prison hospital but only for a few days. Thereafter transfer to the prison cells and into jumper. No way to bail him out. via DM Android App

Before transfering him to prison from Prison Hospital he is likely to get bail

Surgery for what? Transplanting with a sane person's brain. Now he can be released.

Did they cut his umbilical cord in the hospital. He is such an innocent baby according to his supporter priests.

I do not understand why a wide publicity is given to this person by the media. By this a wrong doer is raised to the level of a hero.
