Shafi Saga: Kurunegala Hospital Director Dr. Weera Bandara Misleads Court, Tantamount To Contempt

Criminal Investigation Department (CID) informed the Kurunegala Magistrate that since the lengthy submission made by the Director of the Kurunegala teaching hospital Dr A. M. S. Weera Bandara stating sever complications can result by performing HSG test on women, 7 women have undergone the said test with his knowledge at the Kurunegala Hospital.

Revelations on the said double standards and many other irregularities that severely questioned the bona fides of the Director as well as the Deputy Director of the Hospital Dr. K. M. C. Kendagamuwa were made today (August 9) when the case relating to Dr. Seigu Shihabdeen Shafi was taken up.

Dr. Shafi

Soon after arresting Dr. Shafi and conducting investigations into allegations that he had intentionally sterilised female patients that were operated by him CID informed that SHG tests should be conducted to elicit scientific evidence as to whether the reproductive system has not been tampered with, of the females who have complained of not being able to conceive.

The Director, who is not a party in this case was allowed to make lengthy submissions as to why women should not undergo the HSG test went on to explain that it will result in complications such as cancer in the reproductive system and even death at times and stressed to court that woman should not be allowed to undergo the said test. These submissions that were made in open court were missing in the case proceedings when CID later obtained a copy of the proceedings.

Director CID SSP Shani Abeysekara testifying before the Parliamentary Select Committee to look into the Easter Sunday attacks said that Dr Weera Bandara had no authority to make submissions in court as he is not a party to the case.

HSG, known as Hysterosalpingogram; A hysterosalpingogram imaging test that is used to examine the cavity of the uterus and Fallopian tubes. In a hysterosalpingogram, dye (called contrast material) is injected through a tube inserted through the vaginal into the uterus.

The B report filed by the CID includes statements obtained by the hospital radiologists and gynaecologists. In the statement given by Dr Peshala Rangajeewa Dangalla, Obstetrician and Gynecologist of the Kurunegala General Hospital states that the director Weera Banara has asked him in writing on April 24, to continuously hold the subfertility clinic that was intermittently held owing to his busy schedule.

In his statement to the CID Dr. Dangalle has further stated that Deputy Director of the hospital has made a list of mothers who have claimed to be infertile after undergoing caesarian operations by Dr. Shafi and had handed over the 4 pages long list to him and instructed him to select the mothers from that list to attend the subfertility clinic.

Fourteen mothers were called for the clinic on 3 June out of which 7 mothers had been selected to undergo the HSG test, under the observation of the Deputy Director Dr. Kendagamuwa.

The doctor’s duplicitous attempts to hold these tests while a court order was given halting conducting the said tests can amount to contempt legal experts say.

The CID, therefore, sought a court order from the Kurunegala Magistrate’s Court directing the Director of the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital to release the four pages long name list that was chosen for the subfertility clinic by the Deputy Director and the original document is given by him containing the fourteen names selected for the tests and any relevant bed head tickets of the patients underwent the SHG and their reports.

The case will be called up again on 12 December.

    Is there any incentive for a Muslim doctor to stay in Sri Lanka? They can offer their services in foreign countries where they will be paid well and they don’t have to deal with racist accusations. During the civil war, many Muslims told me that if it wasn’t for the civil war, hardline Sinhala Buddhist racists would target Muslims. I refused to believe them. I thought those Muslims who made those statements were themselves racist. I was wrong and they were right.

      Any Sri Lankan doctor with self-esteem, confidence in their language skills, and a will to get ahead will emigrate. Never mind the rewards, it is the recognition of your skills and the appreciation of your efforts that matter. This is a nonsense, and following the Easter debacle there have been witch hunts against too many members our Muslim community – unfounded, and pursued on the basis of ‘shame and charge the person first, then go and manufacture the evidence to fit the charge’. So very Sri Lankan.

      Mohamed The Atheist,

      You are correct. Why?

      The Para-Sinhala are brainwashed from a youngage at home, at school, at Buddhist Sunday Schools, and in general among themselves that all others are Paras, Para-Demalis, Parangio etc based on the lies and imagination in the Mahaeamsa.

      This case of accusing the Muslim doctor is actually an extension of the lies and imaginations of the Para-Sinhala, with Para/ monks involved as well. Read Amarasiri’s posts.

      It looks like you have never eard of what happened to a Dr called Mohamed Haneef in Australia.
      /
      Haneef was arrested at Brisbane Airport,on suspicion of terrorism-related activities, with Haneef’s detention becoming the longest without charge in Australian history.
      /
      Haneef was later released without charges on 27 July 2007, and he left Australia voluntarily on 29 July 2007, returning later to claim damages. He was supposedly awarded millions of dollars in compensation and he now works in Kuwait.
      /
      I suppose discrimination from white masters is bearable!

      “They can offer their services in foreign countries……….”

      When most of the countries reluctant to give visa to Muslims you can imagine to treat them.

      It is hard line Buddhist who blew up in churches no? How innocent these Muslims are?

    Mohammad, you guys always were wrong. You have to make a stand. Just playing double game is of no use and hope you realise this truth. Basically you guys were exploiting both sides using the Sinahala Tamil violence and hatred. Earlier Tamils and later VP considered Muslims as their partners and Tamil speaking people. But you guys betrayed the Tamils and went on to support and even worked for the racist hoping to get maximum benefit from Sinhalese. Worst still you guys undermined the Tamil struggle. That was why VP came hard on you at times. You supported the Sinhala racists and even went on a killing rampage in the east, killing innocent Tamil civilians. Why did you do that? Not out of love for Sinhalese but to reap maximum benefit out of the chaos. You guys acted as spies and moles. You guys used your Tamil to spy on them. Now you realise the truth but too late. You guys also tried to be too smart and even confrontational. Did care too hoots for others. Now repenting is too late brother. being too selfish is not good.

      Nathan, need I remind you that in the first race riot in Lanka in 1915, Sinhala people rioted against Muslims and the Tamilian chief, Rambonathan Poorandbailing defended the Sinhala rioters. He even went to London to plead on behalf of the rioters. During the civil war, Vileyoupielie Prebakering started a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Muslims. That is why Muslims sided with the government after originally being neutral in the war. The Tamilians only claim Muslims as their own people when it suits their tiger terrorist agenda. Tamilians always complain about the black July riots, but Tamilians committed far worse atrocities when they controlled the north and east. The Tamilian terrorists used their own children as cannon fodder! If Muslims would have supported the Tamilian terrorists, then Muslims would have become cannon fodder. Those monsters don’t care for their own children! Muslims were right to support the government against the para demalu terrorists

    Another “I said so moment”, My last comment, a week ago, was on Weera Bandara,s Medical lies. Most of the facts we come to know from CT is not at all mentioned in Lankan Media.

    The social and economic prosperity of the Muslims were at the expense of the Tamil people. During the war, the Sinhalese racists utilized the Muslims to inflict death and destruction. In eastern provinces, the Muslim Home Guards ably assisted and abetted by the Sinhala army killed and chased the Tamils from border villages. This way dozens of Tamil villages have been occupied by Muslims. Former MP and Governor of the eastern province boasted that he had demolished a Hindu Kali temple and used the land to build meat stalls for the Muslim butchers. This was done with the connivance of the Sinhala racists government in Colombo. Now that the Sinhala racist government has defeated the Tamils, it is turning its gun on the Muslims.
    The Sinhala racist governments of all hues want to turn the eastern province a Sinhalese majority province. The Gal Oya, Allai – Kantalai, Morawewa and numerous other colonization schemes have ended in Sinhalese population exploding from 8.4% in 1946 to 23.15% a fourfold increase. Now under the Accelerated Mahaveli Development Scheme, the North is being Sinhalized at rocket speed. Turning a traditional Tamil area called Manal Aru into Weli Oya. This was a deliberate and well-planned state-sponsored Sinhala Colonization scheme to alter the demography of the Tamil people. Now Viharas are sprouting like a mushroom in the North. In the process, the Buddhist monks are destroying Hindu Temples. The Archaeological Department is ably assisting and conniving with Sinhala – Buddhist monks. Incidentally, the Archaeological department is coming under Minister Sajith Premadasa who is staking his claim to be nominated as Presidential candidate by the UNF/UNP./DNF!
    Muslims must realise that they will be made mincemeat when Sinhala – Buddhist extremists make mincemeat of them.

    Thanga,

    You talk about Sinhala ‘colonisation’ of the north and east, but in reality, it was the Tamilians who came to Lanka from south India to colonise that area. If demalu want their own country, they should go back to Tamil Nadu. In fact, in the civil war, many demalu went to Tamil Nadu where they received money, weapons and manpower. Sinhala and Muslims have nowhere to go other than Sri Lanka. This is our only home, unlike the demalu who have a homeland in south India. But that’s not enough for the greedy demalu. They also wanted to take half of our homeland. When demalu controlled the north and east, their first order of business was to kill and expel every non-tamilian in the area. At the same time, there were many demalu who lived happily in the heart of Sinhala land in the southwest. If we allow demalu to be a majority in any area of Lanka, then those demalu will try to take over the country again. This is why it is imperative that the north and east have many Sinhala and Muslims living there. The demographics of the north and east should be just like the southwest- Sinhala, Tamilians, and Muslims all living together peacefully.

    Mohammad, Para dhemalu going against Para Muslims was history. Let us talk of modern day crisis. Don’t deny or forget that Para Muslims were always opportunists, ready to exploit the situation. Are you going to deny that. Of course Muslims not supporting VP is understandable but you guys became the worst moles trying to score a point. You need not have become spies. Anyway, once VP gone you guys got the favour from your masters straightaway. And will continue to enjoy the hospitality. But well your leaders know how to make good living exploiting all. VP’s cleansing was due to your double game and exploiting both Tamils and Sinhalese. VP anyway had a policy and honesty about his move unlike Para Muslims. Poonampalam is more honourable than The kathangkudi naana.

    Muslims are the second largest population in the world. All the above comments are suggesting otherwise.
    ..
    300 or more Christians die around the world each month under the hands of Muslims.
    ..
    Budhism is not allowed in many Muslim countries. Can’t even keep a statue of Buddha.
    ..
    Biggest culprit of all is Soudi Arabia. Yet some Muslims are blindly supporting them.
    ..
    The original forbidden place of gathering was the city of Petra, Saudi Arabia has stolen it in around the 8th century.
    ..
    Wahabism is not in line with the current way of life in the world. Yet some blindly support the idea.
    ..
    When the Government handled JVP and LTTE, the most Sinhalese and Tamils did not pull out the race card.
    ..
    When the Government is handling wahabism, Muslims are acting in a utterly disruptive manner.
    ..
    We need to stop NTJ and wahabism, before it’s too late. The Muslim youth will be saved by this.
    ..
    The Sri Lankans are not after the Muslims, but the extremists. You don’t try to be the judge and the jury.
