Hirunika Guns For Dr. Maheshi Wijeratne Who Covered Up For Duminda Silva

Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra has made a public appeal requesting authorities to investigate Dr. Maheshi Wijeratne, the consultant neurosurgeon who allegedly covered up for Duminda Silva.

In a post published today on her Facebook page which shows a picture of her father, lying dead on a hospital stretcher which clearly shows the fatal gun shot injury to his head, Hirunika said, “I am posting this picture not for your sympathy, but for you to understand this is how ‘shot in the head’ looks like. It’s impossible to live even a second after a shot like this,” she said.

Therefore, she said an investigation should be launched soon against the doctor who submitted false medical information to the Court. Wijeratne, a very close acquaintance of Access Group Chairman Sumal Perera is alleged to have come to the rescue of Duminda Silva soon after his shoot out with Premachandra, helping him cover up by submitting a false report claiming that Silva, had suffered brain injury as a bullet had travelled through his brain during the shooting between Pramachandra and Silva and their thugs.

Sumal Perera was a close associate of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and had been the middle man in bringing in Wijeratne to the scene to help Silva who claims to have lost his memory over the incident.

Silva is currently on death row after being found guilty for murdering Premachandra.
