Court refused Singapore visit for Duminda

28 May 2013 09:41 am - 35     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Colombo Magistrate court today refused permission for MP Duminda Silva to two weeks-visit to Singapore for medical observations.

Silva had filed an application before Additional Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage and asked that his passport be released to visit Mount Elizabeth hospital, Singapore where he was said to have underwent surgeries.

The court refused bail on two grounds that he had not forwarded medical reports with proper reasons and that he had been granted bail by the High Court.
Parliamentarian Duminda Silva is the eleventh suspect in the killing of former Presidential Advisor Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra and three others at Mulleriyawa on the local government elections day on October 8, 2011. (Lakmal Suriyagoda)

    It is unfair. Giving two weeks for medical attention is reasonable request. No need to debate or comments.

    matara guanawardanay Wednesday, 29 May 2013 12:06 AM

    Tommy Wednesday, 29 May 2013 12:38 AM

    Nothing to worry. Things will work as he prefers. This is a temporary move, just to pretend that "justice", is still working out in this" miracle of Asia"!

    Merviya Wednesday, 29 May 2013 05:43 AM

    Sonali De Silva Tuesday, 28 May 2013 11:20 AM

    "where he was said to have underwent surgeries" is not the same as "where he underwent surgery". So which is it? Maybe he is coming out of his amnesia and needs to go back to forget.

    Fayad Tuesday, 28 May 2013 11:22 AM

    So the fairytale continues... and in due course it will be that they 'all lived happily ever after'.

    There is nothing at all wrong with this fellow. He should be given permission to go to gallows

    renu Tuesday, 28 May 2013 01:02 PM

    Is the passport impounded by court?

    Upali Tuesday, 28 May 2013 07:26 PM

    Judges take the oath for action without 'fear of favour'. And they earn the respect of the public. Hats off to Hon. judge!

    Vaz Tuesday, 28 May 2013 01:30 PM

    Just to show to the general public that all the decisions are not in favour of him, but he will get it next time
