Medical tests against Dr. Shafi to be done at Castle and de Soysa hospitals Featured

The women who allege to have been sterilised by the Kurunegala Hospital doctor Mohamed Shafi, would undergo tests to determine if they had been sterilised at the Colombo Castle and de Soysa hospitals.

The Kurunegala Magistrates Court ordered the Health Ministry Secretary to provide all required equipment for the conduct of these tests.

Based on the request by the CID, the Kurunegala Magistrates Court has so far issued several orders while the CID commenced investigations into these allegations on May 27.

Accordingly, based on the request of the CID the Kurunegala Magistrate ordered the Kurunegala Hospital Director to assist the CID in their investigations.

Meanwhile, Police Media Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara said that a three member medial specialist team has been appointed to check these women to determine if they have been sterilised as alleged.

The special team is headed by the Colombo Chief JMO, while two other VOGs will also assist him in carrying out these tests.
