Duminda Silva Discharged From Hospital
By Indika Sri Aravinda
Parliamentarian Duminda Silva has been discharged from the Singapore hospital where he was receiving medical treatment following the Mulleriyawa shooting last October.
According to well informed sources Silva was discharged from the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore as his health condition had improved.
Last week the CID informed court that it had obtained a statement from Silva in hospital on July 22 and that he had said he could not recall the Mulleriyawa shooting incident in which Presidential Adviser Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra was killed.
However sources revealed that he is now staying at an apartment owned by parliamentarian Sajin Vaas Gunawardena and is not in hospital. Silva is still receiving physiotherapy treatment at the apartment in Singapore. Silva was earlier scheduled to return to Sri Lanka this month. When The Sunday Leader contacted his coordinating secretary A. Hewavithara he however said he was not aware of Silva being discharged from hospital and did not wish to comment further.
