The Colombo Additional Magistrate yesterday ordered the Probation and Child Protection  Department to dismiss the board of management of the Makola Male Offenders Tranit Home.

Colombo Additional magistrate Ms. Y. Fernando made this direction on the Probation and Child Protection Department on considering the submissions made by the Women and Child Protection Authority. The Authority submitted that keeping the present  management of the transit home in office had slowed down the recording of the statements of the children since they were scared to make any statements to the investigating officers when the present management was in office.

The magistrate ordered the JMO of the Ragama Hospital to produce the post mortem report of the dead child who had died of dengue. (By T. Farook Thajudeen)
