The Colombo Fort Magistrate today issued an arrest warrant on the Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) for failing to submit a detailed post mortem report on B. Sivakumar the mentally unstable youth who was allegedly drowned by the police in Bambalapitiya last year.

When the case was taken up for hearing, Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne asked the Colombo Crime Division (CCD) to submit the post mortem report, to which the CCD informed court that it had not yet been submitted by the JMO.

The Magistrate then issued a warrant for the JMO for not submitting his report to court on time. (LS)

    Well done, arrest him and the police officers and throw them all in the same cell. The Officer In Charge should also be arrested and the SSP and DIG made to explain their roles in this sorry tale.

    good issue and same thing should be followed to the judiciary and the lawyers who drag the cases for petty personal reason.

    Maybe he also got service charge from the accuse to delay or foget to submit post mortem report.

    May be that the JMO is instructed by the powerful authority not to issue the report or to manipulate it, which is against his consious.

    This is good move... warrants should be issued against police officers etc also when they fail to discharge their duties impartially

    Thursday, 11 March 2010 10:23 AM

    Like to hear the JMO's side of the story. Hope Daily Mirror would follow-up and let us know.

    JMO must be under threat from the Policemen who killed the youth.

    Thursday, 11 March 2010 10:59 AM
