The Attorney General will file a case against the ex-JMO Ananda Samarasekera under the Public Property Act over the murder of ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen. Charges will be filed on grounds that Dr. Samarasekera was responsible for the body parts of the deceased ruggerite which went missing under Samrasekera’s eye.
In August, Samarasekera filed a Fundamental Rights application seeking an order preventing his arrest in connection with the missing body parts of Thajudeen.
In August, Health Ministry Secretary Anura Jayawickrema in a report submitted to the Colombo Additional Magistrate said that the ex-JMO was responsible for the missing body parts of Thajudeen. Jayawickrema said that Samarasekera had acted in an irresponsible manner when conducting the first postmortem, in which Samarasekera ruled Thajudeen’s death was due to an accident. The ex-JMO had claimed that he had handed over the body parts to two minor staff to store in a freezer but both staff members had denied this.
