Former president’s secretary Lalith Weeratunga and former TRC director general AnushaPalpita were admitted to the Prison Hospital today.

Prisons Reforms Ministry Spokesman Dumidu Bandara said they were admitted to hospital as they had complained of suffering from diabetes.

Meanwhile, he said they were drafting a document making the consent of the Prisons Department Commissioner General mandatory if a prisoner was to be admittedto the Prison Hospital.
Currently, this is done with only the consent of the prison hospital’s doctor. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    In that case all prisoners having diabetes should be admitted to Prison Hospital irrespective of their position. All prisoners - please apply for this newly found facility.

    GC Friday, 08 September 2017 06:12 PM

    Some like me will even consider going into prison voluntarily, although not guilty of anything, to get good treatment for my diabetes 24 hours a day!

    vihura Friday, 08 September 2017 03:02 PM

    This is how they flouted the rules when the ali baba was in power and they still have learnt nothing.

    liyanage Friday, 08 September 2017 03:03 PM

    The principal sent for 8 yrs RI FOR Rs25000/- for 600M ONLY 3 YRS and hospital can anyone enlighten us,

    RD Friday, 08 September 2017 06:27 PM

    Very simple reason - he is not diabetic.

    citizen Friday, 08 September 2017 03:05 PM

    This is a nice joke

    ananda Friday, 08 September 2017 03:16 PM

    The government must formulate a system to produce these prisoners to a specialist panel of government doctors to determine hospitalization or otherwise. via DM Android App

    Malik Friday, 08 September 2017 03:31 PM

    This is a blady joke,any criminal with political influence will end up at the hospital

    thilak Friday, 08 September 2017 03:36 PM

    gamini Friday, 08 September 2017 03:37 PM

    RD Friday, 08 September 2017 06:31 PM

    Actually doctors should start the medication as soon as possible.

    sunil Friday, 08 September 2017 03:37 PM

    Dr. K. Keerthisinghe Friday, 08 September 2017 04:15 PM

    Now at the Prison Hospital and later with the state cost in a Private Hospital.... is this is the scenario?

    Berty Ratnatillake (Journalist) Friday, 08 September 2017 04:16 PM

    Anyway, we know MR would have contacted RW and made this arrangements, is this the real justice in SriLanka.

    Awanthi Friday, 08 September 2017 04:18 PM

    this is truly a Banana rich republic

    S.T.M. Jabeer (Attorney-at-Law) Friday, 08 September 2017 04:20 PM

    Hopefully, very soon they will be released from the Prison Hospital as well as from the Prison - this is called Political drama.

    Dr. A.C.B. Jayaweera Friday, 08 September 2017 04:21 PM

    May be both of them lost their memory.

    CITIZEN Friday, 08 September 2017 04:21 PM

    When these peoples are out side they had a luxury life, no complain, no any Health issues.Once they go behind-bar all the illnesess are starting,What a JOKE.....

    Dennis Reeves Friday, 08 September 2017 04:23 PM

    Will they be sent to Singapore for treatment with the state expenses, on the request of Mahinda to Hon. Prime Minister

    Nadi Karunaratne Friday, 08 September 2017 04:25 PM

    As predictable as the sun coming up in the morning. Looked healthy enough yesterday. Contrast with the fate of the normal prisoner. The political class protect each other.

    Kalu Kopi Kandappa Friday, 08 September 2017 04:27 PM

    MR - Ranil come for a coffee party today, OK no problem Mahinda, I like black coffee. Well, I will arrange everything, but you must do what I say .... OK says Ranil.

    S.P.RAMKUMAR Friday, 08 September 2017 04:30 PM

    Rohan Friday, 08 September 2017 04:32 PM

    SL is a banana republic.

    Be Fair Friday, 08 September 2017 06:37 PM

    The way IUSL and JO is shouting, it seems the Doctor who determined they had Diabetics must be a Graduate of SAITM

    Citizen Perera Friday, 08 September 2017 06:40 PM

    They say this is Yahaplanaya....but there is NO PALANAYA at all in this Pearl of Indian ocean. All are damn rough..

    Social Justice - R.I.P in Sri Lanka

    bobby Friday, 08 September 2017 06:59 PM

    What a joke, we the citizens knew all along this is well arranged. Corruption breeds corruption. Children born into corruption will protect these corrupt convicts forever.

    Sumanadasa Friday, 08 September 2017 07:30 PM

    Give them enough insulin til their systems collapse!

    malij Friday, 08 September 2017 07:52 PM

    The prisons doctor who sent them to the hospital must be from the GMOA working committee.

    Raj Friday, 08 September 2017 08:02 PM

    Hereafter the judge should give verdict "Without Hospital"!!! like "Without Parole"

    Hora Polis Friday, 08 September 2017 08:04 PM

    "Rigorous Imprisonment" means, RAJA HORU spend their prison terms in "normal living" in prison hospital and All others spend their terms in "prison". Basil is the next to admit himself to the prison hospital.

    cnj Friday, 08 September 2017 08:18 PM

    A foregone conclusion and we thought justice had caught up with the fakes ! Three cheers to the Dr in the house and three cheers to our flawed system !

    Gerry Friday, 08 September 2017 08:22 PM

    do people of this country understand that they are paying out of their pockets for these facilities? and don't forget the good Dr who recommended the facility? what a joke!!

    TONY Friday, 08 September 2017 08:25 PM

    THESE POOR OFFICERS HAVE TO SUFFER BECAUSE MR DONATED THESE SIL REDHI IN THE WAKE OF THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. THIS OPERATION WAS SIMILAR TO BR, MR COMBINED OPERATION WITH TSUNAMI FUNDS. HOWEVER, SNDES SAVE MR THAT TIME. SINCE THEY ARE HUMBLE OFFICERS I THINK THEY SHOULD BE GIVEN A PRESIDENTIAL PARDON AND RELIEVE THEM OF SERVING A PRISON TERM

    Ananda Saturday, 09 September 2017 01:31 PM

    The two ministers in charge of prisons and health need go take appropriate action to transfer these corrupt officials. The courts need to order to produce them before a specialised panel of doctors. via DM Android App
