The staff of the Kurunegala Hospital had decided not to give evidence before the committee-which was appointed by Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne- to probe the allegations against Dr Siyabdeen  Mohamed Safi.

The decision had been conveyed in writing to the Hospital Director by the organization called “Organization to Protect Kurunegala Hospital”.

Spokesman for the Organization Dr Indika Ratnayake said they had no faith in the committee appointed by Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne.

He said however, they were ready to give evidence before a committee appointed by the President.

The committee which includes six members arrived at the hospital today but none of the hospital staff offered to give evidence before the committee.(Pushpakumara Jayaratne)

    When people take law into their own hands this is the result of a indisciplined society. President set bad example recently. Country going to dogs literally

    Probably means they are part of the scam!

    Even the hospital staff fear a whitewash investigation! Time for no-confidence vote of health minister?

    Country goes from fame to shame

    George Harry Tuesday, 28 May 2019 11:15 PM

    Knowing people know whether the allegations leveled against the said Doctor were true OR false!

    Smart move by the health staff. Obviously, smelt a rat!

    All we see is political games everywhere. This Committee should have had members from CID and Police to be impartial. Goal should be to punish the Dr if he was wrong and not gain political goals. SLMC should be behind the refusal definitely.

    Send the health minister home. Should bring a no confidence motion against him.

    Retired Police Officer Wednesday, 29 May 2019 12:19 AM

    We can’t allow the doctors to protect one of their own kind being accused of heinous crime. I think the CID should question all the doctors at this hospital. If they refuse to cooperate then all of them must be arrested.

    Send all Muslim doctors back to their home and cancel their licenses to practice

    This issue has become very political and if they don't provide evidence to substantiate their allegations the person who is accused will walk free.and is that what the public wants Wasantha

    Bad precedent. The President has to do everything - so disband Cabinet and save money. Thi is a GMOA move against Ministeer.

    sunil vijaya Wednesday, 29 May 2019 06:49 AM

    health minister should go!!!!!!

    Cobra Wednesday, 29 May 2019 06:58 AM

    Then there is more to it than meets the eye, perhaps the Pohottuwa is behind all this as well!!!

    Hos-Pit Wednesday, 29 May 2019 07:56 AM

    They have a point!!
