LRH Director ordered to submit report on Madrasa textbooks

Fort Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake issued an order yesterday directing the Lady Ridgeway Hospital (LRH) Director to submit a report pertaining to the psychological impact on children of three textbooks used by the Madrasa School at Mundalama.

The Madrasa School has been run by Attorney-at-law Hejaaz Hizbullah, who was detained under the custody of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). The CID informed that the aforementioned textbooks were originally in Tamil, and that they have been translated it into Sinhala and English.

Hizbullah was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Department on April 14 for his alleged involvement in the Easter Sunday attacks. However, the CID had not produced him before courts after his detention. The CID informed court that they are still recording statements and conducting investigations into the matter.

President’s Counsel Wasantha Nawaratne Bandara, appearing on behalf of Hejaaz Hizbullah, informed court that the detention order was signed by the President on the grounds of Hizbullah aiding and abetting a suicide bomber named Inshaf Ahmed.

“The CID had failed to submit any single fact pertaining to the detention order; there was a political scenario behind this matter,” PC Nawaratne Bandara said.

After taking into consideration, the order regarding the producing of Attorney-at-Law Hejaaz Hizbullah (who is currently under detention), to courts, will be delivered on July 1.
