Dilini Anne Silva, the sister of Duminda Silva, said that the doctor who carried out the first surgery on Duminda Silva in Sri Lanka is well aware of his medical condition.
Dilini Anne Silva said that Duminda Silva was transferred from the prison hospital to the Sri Jayawardanapura hospital by prison officials as he was falling sick frequently.
“The story that we have an intention to take him to Singapore is an absolute lie and a made up story to mislead the public. He’s a human being who was shot on the head and has the right to receive treatment although the Sri jayawardapura hospital has refused to treat him stating prisoners are not welcomed at the Sri Jayawardanapura hospital,” she said in a Facebook post.
Duminda Silva was convicted over the murder of politician Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra and was sentenced to death.
Duminda Silva has filed an appeal against the death sentence. (Colombo Gazette)
