A bogus homeopathic practitioner who had made arrangements for an illegal child adoption is under investigations by the National Child Protection Authority (NCPA), Anoma Dissanayake Chairman of the NCPA told Daily Mirror online

 

Appearing as a homeopathic practitioner, he had advised an unmarried couple not to have an abortion but to allow the baby to be born so that child can be given to someone interested in adopting the child. He had also advised the couple to find a place for rent near his clinic.

 

The homeopathic practitioner had thereafter given accommodation to the couple after the child birth and had had requested a hospital attendant of a leading hospital to find persons to give the child for adoption. 

 

The hospital attendant had thereafter located a woman whose sister was aboard and in need of a child for adoption. Subsequently, the woman from Italy had arrived in the island and had visited the doctor as well as the child’s mother, who she was in the process of illegally adopting.

 

The new mother of the baby had given a bottle of Brandy and Rs.2, 000/- as a gift to the attendant promising more remuneration after her husband’s arrival, from Italy.

 

After an investigation conducted by the NCPA which was prompted by a tip off received from an anonymous caller it has come to light that the person who had been acting as a homeopathic practitioner had done so with a forged certificate. And had used homeopathy as a curtain for his illegal activities

 

Mrs. Dissanayake said that the bogus Homeopathic Certificate had been sent to the Chairman of the Homeopathic Commission Chandana Weerasekera for verification and that it was confirmed that the certificate was forged.

 

A comprehensive investigation had been commenced on the activities of the so called homeopathic doctor. (Daily Mirror online)

    Aren't ALL homeopaths bogus.

    Simply by prescribing fake cures (as they do) to desparate people is bad enough.

    Why cannot we adopt a child... Its better than abortion... This is my view.. Good doctor, gave a good advice for parents... instead of killing the baby.... The doctor also didnt do for the sake of money... and parent too... The mother who is going to adopt the child has given some gift to parents.....

    It is better to relax rules on adoption but with a very thorough check on the adopting parents by NCPA and minimum delay to ensure due process through a Magistrate. What is the purpose of the law as it exists - profitting none but for beaurocrats to have something to do.

    If the doc advised on abortion, only he should be charged for it. What he has done was 100% acceptable for a civilised counry. ...Well in Sri Lanka i dont think the term 'civilised' is valied any more.

    I dont find any wrong doing in this matter, provided the doctor did the paper works in an appropriate manner

    I think first of all the authrities should verify Chandana Weerasekars Certificate.......to make sure the person who is chairng the seat is a qualifed man

    Homeopathy is not based on any known scientific evidence and hence all homeopathy doctors are con-doctors. The patient will become better if he or she takes less homeopathic "medicine".
