Sri Lanka: Shafi files FR potion

Dr. Mohamed Shafi Siyabdeen of Kurunegala Hospital files a FR petition before SC requesting to declare his arrest and detention as illegal.

The tornado of allegations levelled against Dr. Seigu Siyabdeen Mohammed Safi, ignited after the newspaper article accused him of sterilizing 4,000 mothers without their consent.

The doctor - attached to the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital (KTH) - was arrested shortly afterwards, on May 24, over charges of amassing a large amount of wealth and assets. Soon, the authorities called the public to come forward with complaints if any, against him on sterilisation accusations.

There were instances where Muslims were attacked following the April 21 Easter Sunday terrorist onslaught, that left 258 dead and nearly 500 others injured. Mosques, houses and businesses belonging to Muslims were attacked leaving at least one dead.
