A number of government legislators requested Health Minister Keheliya Rambukwella yesterday to take action against Ministry Secretary Sanjeewa Munasinghe over the reinstatement of Dr. Shafi Shihabdeen who is facing charges over unlawful sterilisation of women who sought treatment from him during their childbirths.

Dr. Shihabdeen was on compulsory leave after investigations conducted by the authorities of the Kurunegala hospital found him guilty. Some government MPS have taken the view that inquiries have not been conducted at the ministry level afterwards leading to his reinstatement with salary arrears. The Ministry Secretary is accused of not acting properly against Dr. Shihabdeen.

Asked about it, Minister Rambukwella told Daily Mirror that he received such a request from quite a number of government MPS. He also said there was some controversy involved in the whole process, and he will look into it.

“Ï will look at the procedure to see whether there is any error. Afterwards, I will take action,” he said.(Kelum Bandara)

    This doctor was acquitted by the court. Similar large scale loots and murders have been released by the court for technical issues. Where were these issues. I am Dr. Patas, where is Kehiliyas Dr in from of his name. Gone for a ride.

    They will rush to Punish the State officials - How about pressuring the President to Punish those who are responsible for the Fertiliser mess. Hypocrites.

    This is nothing compared to the fact that so many murderers are now holding high ranking positions in the government!

    Dee Saturday, 18 December 2021 06:15 PM

    What for? For making the women who accused him becoming pregnant!

    PURE DISCRIMINATION.

    Kumar Sunday, 19 December 2021 08:55 AM

    Didn't some politician get elected using Dr, Shafi as a scapegoat. This doctor didn't do elective cesarians but to save the mother and child from death, whenever called upon to do so anytime of the day. What an ungrateful bunch.

    Raja Sunday, 19 December 2021 09:04 AM

    Worst government for ever

    Decentgent Monday, 20 December 2021 09:58 AM

    The doctor is proved innocent. Hence Munasinhe's action is justified. The secretary is a learned person unlike other jokers in Ministry of Health etc.
