14,000 hospital records to be inspected to probe the missing persons
A probe will be conducted to find if the persons reported to be missing during the war have been hospitalized.
The Chairman of the Presidential Commission Investigating Cases of Missing Persons Maxwell Paranagama stated that records of 14 thousand patients in several hospitals in the North and East during the war time will be inspected.
He further added that it would be a challenge to compare the details of the missing persons, with the computerized details of the patients.
Regarding the persons who allegedly went missing during the war time, the parents who made the complaints suspect whether they have been detained in Welikada and Boossa camps.
Accordingly, they received an opportunity to find out last week, whether their relatives or children have been detained or not.
However, the Chairman of the Commission Maxwell Paranagama stated that they could not find any missing persons among the detainees.
