Former Health Minister Keheliya Arrested over Importation of Substandard Drugs Requests Medicine from Singapore

February 06, 2024

Former Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, currently detained at the Prison Hospital, has requested permission to receive his medication from Singapore, sparking controversy and raising eyebrows among the public. Rambukwella's plea for medication from abroad comes amidst ongoing corruption allegations against him, further fueling skepticism and criticism surrounding his actions.

The irony of the situation has not gone unnoticed by many, as Rambukwella, once entrusted with overseeing the nation's healthcare system, now finds himself entangled in allegations of corruption related to the importation of substandard drugs during his tenure as Health Minister.

His request for medication from Singapore, a country known for its advanced healthcare system, adds another layer of irony to the unfolding scandal.

Rambukwella's admission to the Prison Hospital shortly after being remanded has also raised suspicions among the public, with some questioning the timing and motives behind his decision.
