Uduwe Dhammaloka Goes To CID Over Sobitha Thero’s Death

The Venerable Uduwe Dhammaloka Thero made a statement to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) yesterday on the death of the Convener of the National Movement for a Just Society, the late Venerable Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero.

Dhammaloka Thero had alleged that there is evidence to prove that the death of the Venerable Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero was due to foul play.

Speaking to the media after making a statement to the CID, Uduwe Dhammaloka Thero urged Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to appoint an independent commission and investigate the death of the leading monk.

Dhammaloka Thero said that he would assist the probe in order to ensure that the truth is revealed.

The monk dismissed claims that he made the statement to the CID to divert attention from the investigations on him over an elephant calf he had without proper documents. (ER)

      A very good comment, 1) Why Sobitha Thero was suddenly move to Singapore Hospital, Did they take a dead body to Singapore, Or did they take a half dead body to Singapore,2) Why did the GOSL did not take any serious interest about the poor health of Sobitha Thero was first reported, 3)Why Sobitha thero was not sent to Singapore when he first complained about illness, 4) Why Sobitha thero was left to find his own means to look for private hospital care,5) Why one Dr. Fernando not so reputable offered to take care of Sobhitha Thero, after the surgery as he was not able to afford to recover in the hospital where he underwent surgery,6) Why Sobitha thero ended up as a destitute These and other questions must be answered. It may be too late to get some realistic answers. But it is never too late.
