Kotelawala goes from Merchant to Prison ward

The most talked about remand prisoner Ceylinco Chairman Lalith Kotelawala was transferred to the Prison Hospital from the Merchant’s Ward, said the National Hospital Director. Mr. Kotelawala has been in remand since February this year over the financial irregularities at Golden key Credit Card Company.

At last week’s hearing of the case at the Mount Lavinia Magistrate’s Court, JMO Dr. Ananda Samarasekera said that Mr. Kotelawala is suffering a heart ailment since 2006 but that he could be transferred to the Prison Hospital as his condition is not critical. This was confirmed by other doctors who examined Mr. Kotelawala.
