US Embassy in Colombo had rejected Northern Province Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran’s request to conduct medical checks to verify whether ex-LTTE carders in custody, were allegedly injected with a poisonous drug, TNA Provincial Councillor M. K. Shivajilingam said today.

He said Chief Minister C.V. Vigneswaran had requested American Ambassador Athul Keshap to carry out medical tests by American doctors on ex-LTTE carders.

According to him, the Chief Minister had made the request on August 16, when Ambassador Athul Keshap visited medical clinics conducted by doctors attached to the US Air Force for the general public in the Northern Province.

The America Embassy informed that the American doctors were unable to fulfil the request because they did not have enough facilities to conduct such medical tests, he said. (Romesh Madushanka)

    What a joke this is. Currently 95% of Sri Lankans, have some sort of an illness due to food, and water problems. If a medical officer checks anybody in Sri Lanka, finds something or the other as illness, that because everything what we consume is Poisson, and that's not deliberate by any person or government or institute.

    Remember, US will not poke its nose in things which has no significance to it, if US air force doctors conduct medical clinic in Jaffna, then it must be for sole purpose in doing their own investigations and the results of same will be used to leverage SL govt. or as bargain chips to advance their cause.

    CM who knows the well should not play politics and advice them, in the same way advised by Health Minister Rajitha, to approach the Jaffna Hospital, if they believe they have some complication or doubts. It can only be tested by doctors and not by politicians.

    The US knows that CVW is only nit-picking on behalf of Prabha's ghost!

    Surely Viggie, having been a judge of the Supreme Court should know that this is all Bull Shit, but he still is making an ass of himself.
