CID in process of releasing Dr. Shafi - Wimal

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) was working towards releasing Dr. Shafi Shihabdeen who was alleged to have performed illegal sterilization, National Freedom Front (NFF) leader Wimal Weerawansa said today.

Addressing a news conference, he said there was no need of an institution called CID if it attempted to release the criminals, even when there were clear cut evidences to prove their culpability.

“It seems that the CID is doing the same thing in the case of Shafi as it is doing for former Minister Rishad Bathiudeen. The CID is doing everything to disprove that Bathiudeen had not abetted to flourish extremism in the country,” MP Weerawansa said.

“It is clear that the CID protects extremists and criminals,” MP Weerawansa added.

However, he said they were even ready to come out with relevant names of officials who are clearing Dr. Shafi, if any senior official of the CID challenged them.

“Now the CID is attempting to put the journalist who revealed the case of Shafi first, behind the bars,” he said.

Meanwhile, he said the complaint lodged by Dr. Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu to the Police Commission against Asgiriya Chapter Mahanayake claiming that the Mahanayake Thera had aroused the feelings of disharmony by uttering that Dr. Shrfi must be stoned to death, should be ignored as the statement of the Mahanayake Thera was not expressed with the real intention of stoning him to death.

“The stoning law is not in our Constitution and it is not a mode of punishment in Sri Lanka. Hence, the statement signifies the gravity of what was allegedly done by Dr. Shafi,” he added. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Wimale is a superman. he knows medicine, criminology, legal, international diplomacy and so on and on. May be knowing cricket also. He should be immidiately sent to England to reveal the international conspiracy which makes our teams dismal performance in the past

    "Addressing a news conference, he said there was no need of an institution called CID if it attempted to release the criminals, even when there were clear cut evidences to prove their culpability." Wasn't there clear cut evidence about this guy having several passports? What happened after his release with a massive cash bond? What about the other allegations of illegal activities?

    Isn't making false accusations and creating racial disharmony, a crime? Why are they leaving this trouble maker on the lose while he is clearly trying hard to set the entire country on fire?

    senerath Thursday, 27 June 2019 09:16 AM

    these were mere false allegations against Dr.Shafi. So far no evidence has been provided by the accusers. So why should he not be released

    WIMAL THE GREAT Thursday, 27 June 2019 09:34 AM

    "The CID is doing everything to disprove...." CID please get this fellow and question him on what evidence he has in this regard.

    Mohd Thursday, 27 June 2019 09:36 AM

    Mr. Wimal , if you are an intellectual person than CID you submit your statement before releasing Dr. Shafi.

    Lord Wolfstein Thursday, 27 June 2019 09:59 AM

    It is already a human rights violation to take someone in remand because of unsubstantial and idiotic accusations. If the CID then finds out in its investigations that the allegations are wrong, it is not the case of a dubious racist politician to question this to obtain political advantage.

    Doctor can't be punished, if there are no evidence, it's totally wrong and against the.country laws.

    Wimal, if you are smart, why don't you take legal action against the CID, for being negligent ? Don't use primitive methods like removing plug.

    “The stoning law is not in our Constitution and it is not a mode of punishment in Sri Lanka. Hence, the statement signifies the gravity of what was allegedly done by Dr. Shafi," So you know, that such punishments are necessary based on the gravity of the crime although you bluff about sentences given in the Middle East, what a coward.

    Aloka Thursday, 27 June 2019 05:18 PM

    We must understand the root of political vested interests, which caused the false case against Dr Shafi, hatred against Muslims, and (the most important matter) investigation into negligence in avoiding Easter Day attack. Let's understand who wishes to become next president by cheap politics, and by disturbing peace in Sri Lankan

    Mr. Multi plug will be the next AG!
