Ex Colombo JMO Prof. Ananda Samarasekera alleged that the present JMO had intimidated and pressurized doctors who conducted the first autopsy on the body of ruggerite Mohamed Waseem Thajudeen.

In a letter addressed to Colombo Additional Magistrate Nishantha Pieris yesterday, Dr, Samarasekera said he could not expect an impartial second post mortem examination report from the present JMO on Thajudeen’s death.

Dr. Samarasekara also said he conducted the first postmortem examination with several other additional JMOs on March 17, 2012 on the body of Thajudeen and submitted a primary report and interim reports to court on his findings.

However consequent to the commencement of the second postmortem examination he was called to the CID to record his statement on the postmortem examination conducted by him on Thajudeen’s body.

During the inquiry the detectives asked several questions from him that should be answered after carefully and conceptually studying the examination reports.
Thus he requested the CID to give him a written questionnaire with copies to the Court which the CID had later rejected assuming they were needless.

Dr. Samarasekera in his letter further stated that at the time of his retirement from public service on June 03, 2013, he took away with him the original notes that he took down while examining the body of Thajudeen leaving the rest in his office

He also said the body of Thjajudeen was exhumed to perform a second postmortem examination by a panel of doctors headed by the present JMO.

Dr. Samarasekera said while the present JMO worked under him as a deputy there were constant disagreements on administrative matters between the JMO and Dr. Samarasekera.

Dr. Samarasekera stated that the present JMO had made false allegations against him to the Director of Health on several occasions which were refused by the Director. (T. Farook Thajudeen)

    Karthi, you have misse reading between the lines or you have NOT UNDERSTOOD, what the Prof. is saying. Comprehension of the English language may be the difficulty.

    He took the originals away and that was the correct thing to do at that time. Look at the context under which he was required to perform his duties. Easy for us to say why why why why but we were not there to face the music and anticipated conaequences.

    During Jan - Aug we had many dramas. Looked like playacting to get votes. But will the govt. really have the will to convict those who have done so much of wrong instead of dragging the cases. I cannot understand why Tiran cannot be arrested if he has done wrong - what FR for wrongdoers. Complicated picture.

    I think you missed the point wholesale.

    Rasheed Friday, 04 September 2015 10:14 AM

    Yes, very good question, he has taken only Thajudeen notes leaving the rest. Another KP case.

    People are concerned only over the postmortem examination of Thaju and not the post-mortem of the JMO. by Dr.Samarasekera.

    ram Friday, 04 September 2015 06:10 AM

    Prof Samarasekera has got cold feet may be for providing an incorrect report at that time to help the then authorites

    Prof Samaraseka being a rotten junk of the previous government evidently was partial and bias to them in many occasions. I can certainly imagine why he is in a hurry to issue statements instead of helping the investigations, He made a very derogatory comment few weeks ago on the exhumed body of Mr. Tajudeen saying there is no evidence can be collected on it. Is this the Forensic Medicine he is practicing or he already has destroyed the evidence on it.

    Samadh Friday, 04 September 2015 06:39 AM

    Why did he take the originals away when he left office, that shows he was covering up something.

    Bala Friday, 04 September 2015 12:03 PM

    Looks like he is worried he will be exposed - so shifting blame on new JMO.

    Veda-mama Friday, 04 September 2015 12:51 PM

    He would have taken the originals with him..because..if he leaves it behind all his findings will be destroyed.

    Das Saturday, 05 September 2015 04:15 AM

    Doctors are expected to carry out their duties according to the Hippocratic Oath.This includes truthfulness in post-mortem reports.

    Rita Friday, 04 September 2015 08:22 AM

    Now the elections are over and the matter will be rest in peace.No outcome is expected until the next elections.

    rajitha Saturday, 05 September 2015 06:36 PM

    The actions of the former JMO raise suspicion
