Interim report handed over to Ministry

The interim report issued by the six-member committee appointed to investigate the issue of Dr. Seigu Siyabdeen Mohamed Saafi who has been accused of illegally sterilising women without their knowledge, at Kurunegala Teaching Hospital, was handed over to Health Ministry Secretary Wasantha Perera.

The interim report was handed over to the Health Ministry Secretary by the head of the committee Dr. Anil Samaranayake. The report states that the composition of the six-member committee should be expanded considering the high number of complaints and the long time period.

The interim report also says that all complaints made by women who underwent Caesarean operations at Kurunegala Teaching Hospital during the specific period and became sub-fertile thereafter, should be investigated.

The report points out the importance of educating the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital Director and the staff of supporting the investigation.

The Hospital Director should be informed to provide all details of all women who had become sub-fertile after the Caesarean operations performed by Dr. Saafi and details of the staff involved in those operations, the report said.
