Case against former JMO fixed for October 3

The case filed against former Chief Judicial Medical Officer (JMO) Prof. Ananda Samarasekara over concealing evidence relating to the murder of national ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen was yesterday fixed for October 3 by the Colombo High Court.

The case was taken up before Colombo High Court Judge Manjula Thilakaratne. Indictments were served at the Colombo High Court and Prof. Samarasekara was granted bail after serving the indictments. He was released on two surety bails of Rs.1 million and a cash bail of Rs. 25,000.

The Attorney General filed charges under section 198 of the Penal Code against the former Chief JMO. In the indictments, the Attorney General charged that Prof. Samarasekara had assigned two junior medical officers to conduct Thajudeen’s post mortem although the procedure required that he conduct the first post-mortem himself. When conducting the first post-mortem the accused has given instructions for the removal of several body parts from Thajudeen’s body under the guise of conducting further investigations.
