Yoshitha Granted Permission To Go Abroad For Medical Treatment

The Colombo High Court today permitted Yoshitha Rajapaksa to travel overseas for medical treatment, after he said that he had sustained a sports injury.

Yoshitha Rajapaksa

Yoshitha Rajapaksa

The Court, which had impounded Yoshitha’s passport had permitted him a period of one month to seek medical treatment for his injury and return back to the country. According to the application by Yoshitha’s lawyer, Yoshitha requires foot surgery and hence he has to travel overseas for the operation.

Although the Attorney General’s department had objected to Yoshitha’s request, High Court Judge A. A. Heiyanthuduwa had said that until proven guilty, Yoshitha was still considered innocent and therefore, he can go overseas for medical treatment.

Yoshitha, the second son of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, is currently out on bail over money laundering charges.

    what if the boy would seek for refuge in a foreign soil claiming current situation ?

    I think this should not have happened. Why the law cant be that strict as it is the case in Germany or Singapore ?

      “The Colombo High Court today permitted Yoshitha Rajapaksa to travel overseas for medical treatment, after he said that he had sustained a sports injury.”

      Where are those internationally renowned Sri Lankan doctors/surgeons/orderly/…. who not only capable but they set medical standard for professional excellence?

      Could some one tell this boy that if he cannot find excellent medical treatment in this country he wouldn’t find one anywhere else. We are being assured by doctors, day in day out.

      By the way, who is paying for the treatment? Dad, Uncles, extended family, arms dealers, China,… may consider it prudent to invest in this boys welfare.

        N.V. – “”that if he cannot find excellent medical treatment in this country he wouldn’t find one anywhere else. “”
        I get your point- the concept of living realistically- even here on CT they hunt like hyenas not humans- hand in glove scum.
        orthopedics is nuclear medicine.-at its best welding
        you do not have the tools and even if you get it the public would destroy it- they broke the radiation machines to make artificial sapphires and when they couldn’t, they created a situation – black July 1983 – rioters came in and took away everything from the Thai Geologist/Gemologist- he escaped death jumping to the neighbors and ran to airport. Thailand is the only country there that has never been conquered the royalty follows. they reciprocate very subtly and are doubting Lankan integrity even today while stupid Lankan are cock sure of their tatte motte bette.

      What a joke! More to the point for judge to ask why YO cannot be treated in Sri Lanka? Is his injury so exotic?!
      Why do politician and their sons always need treatment abroad?! He will be money laundering in Singapore of Dubai!

      will that be the case for any average CTIZEN of this country who has been under investigations ? Or these are some royal previledges to a family whose indifference looted the nation as no other in the history. FCID focuses the family not becasue of taking revenge, but the allegations levelled at the family is very high… no other families of the nation have ever been thrown to have grabbed funds from the nation as MR family has been.
      Notjust one of them, but almost how many of them ?

      Please let this discuss openly, in the so called Good governance frame work….. this has now been a joke to any naked eye, I am simply fed up of hearing and seeing the scenes I never expected from Good Governance to go for…

      Guys , we need to act fast , this criminal will flee the country in no time and won’t return ;hence, some sort of action taking is a must . where are all these organisations , i.e Friday forum , citizen bla bla , lawyers …..

      as some one pointed out below . there are number of safe heavens in the world where they never bothered to ask as to how they earned the money , they just want the money to bring in , that’s all , you would be rewarded with some sort of permanent/temporary residency in their safe heavens . Yoshitha would definitely say , there are politically motivated cases against him and his family ;thus , refuse to return home . after every thing SL judges can argue as to how to issue international arrest warrant to get Yoshitha back home . case in point , fugitive Udayangana Weerathunga a prime murder suspect who is laughing from his rear end at the SL judiciary ; meanwhile ,SL judges even refuse to issue a warrant against the murder suspect.what a joke !

      in the same time, Duminda Silva could leave the country … may also be possible, making every plan to leave here about his danger for health.. if at all an head injury of that kind was the reality. Convicted murder to stayin prison alone is sufficient to gather more information about his head injury…IF RULERS ARE OF COURSE GENUINE MINDED.

    What an insult to SL doctors. It seems the rich & the powerful have no faith in SL doctors. Our own health minister went for treatment abroad & now a rich kid going abroad for treatment, presumably, for a relatively minor ‘sports’ injury (is it life threatening or serious enough to cause permanent damage?) The GMOA thinks SL doctors are the best, so how come the rich have no faith in them?

    I believe there are some countries, particularly, in the Caribbean, who offer permanent residency with no questions asked & not bound by extradition laws for 6m US $. Maybe the Rajapakse clan are thinking of island paradises away from SL if things get hot.

    Had it been an average joe , would the judge grant such permission to a prime murder suspect like Yoshitha ? Yoshitha’s defence lawyers can bring up numerous legal points , thereby, persuade the the judge to concede ! the point being , is there any guarantee that Yo would be returning home ? my guess is as good as yours , he will not be returning to SL to face the death penalty , he would utilise all his ill gotten wealth to seek a refugee claim some where in the the world. AG department must act before it is too late , Yoshitha had committed number of crimes in SL ;thus, there is no reason for him to return to SL to face a possible life sentence in SL .

    Did the joker judge even ask the most rudimentary question, “Have you consulted any doctor or surgeon in Sri Lanka before making the decision to go overseas”.

    Did the joker judge ask if Yo’s medical records have already been seen by any overseas doctor.

    Did the joker judge ask which country Yo is going to for the operation.

    Did the joker judge request to see a medical referral by a Sri Lankan doctor who vouched that only overseas treatment could treat the sprain.

    So the joker judge willy-nilly lets this boy accused of very serious crimes to jump the country.

    I hear Australia mentioned in comments above. I wonder if the Australian government will apply the same visa laws that they apply to keep the poor away. Australian visa laws are strict in not granting entry to persons charged with serious offences.

    Why will any judge in our blessed land ever bother again to impound the passport of any accused because as per this joker judge they are innocent until proven guilty. This is one hell of a precedent.

    Most forms of foot surgery can be completed in 1 or 2 hours. That means the procedure is not complicated.

      If this is the case, there are lot more lawyers to be arrested.

      Two weeks ago, finally i could relax a bit hearing that former Sports ministers with all foul mouth, to stay scot free sofar, but arrested for a land or property fraud.

      This particular man was one of top high profile corrupt men as JVP and Ranjan and many others proved – but lanken courts were away from even looking at.

      But the man to be set free – on bail, loooking down the bailing out of the lanken law system – made me again sick.

      This is the ground reality of lanken systems, even today.

      Current duo explain to have done something, but it hasnot yet been tangible changes. Unfortuntaely, the high corrupt live like kings get served by the elected too. That is the saddest reality that we have to mind up.

    Yoshitha should not bother the Sri Lankan doctors and specialists as they (are all right now) too busy trying to their kids admitted to Royal College.

    This may be the reason why most of the politicos never want any serious medical treatment by Sri Lankan doctors.

    Then again Sri Lanka’s medical colleges rank among the lowest in standard in all the medical colleges in the world except the ones in Sierra Leone and Niger (two of the most corrupt and poorest countries in the world).

    Poor Yoshitha.

    While I respect the judge’s comments about being innocent until proven guilty there is the issue of ‘flight risk’. That is to say, if an accused has the means to live abroad indefinitely then he should not be allowed to leave the jurisdiction.
