Sri Lanka: Sobitha Thero Flown To Singapore For Treatments On Sirisena’s Instructions


The chief incumbent of the Kotte Naga Vihara, Venerable Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero, has been flown to Singapore Hospital last night for further medical treatment on the instructions of Sri Lanka’s President Maithripala Sirisena.


Sobitha Thero was undergoing treatment before that in a private hospital in Colombo.

President Sirisena, who was engaged in a state visit to Thailand, personally looked into the illness of the Venerable Thero and has instructed to take necessary measures for further treatment.

It has also been decided after discussions with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, for the government to bear the entire cost of medical treatment of the Thero.
