The interim report of the investigative committee regarding Dr. Seigu Siyabdeen Mohammed Safi, the Obstetrician and Gynaecologist of the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital who is in custody at present is due to be handed over today.

It is reported that this committee has met under the leadership of Consultant Dr. Anil Samaranayake to discuss the final report that has been prepared.

Subsequently, the relevant interim committee report is due to be handed over to the Secretary of the Ministry of Health.

Although this report was to have been handed over to the Ministry of Health yesterday, the handing over was delayed since it was not possible to prepare it and finalize it.

Acting Director General of Health Dr. Lal Panapitiya said that once the report is received future investigations will be carried out.

Meanwhile, President of the Sri Lanka Medical Council Professor Harendra Silva said that an official of the Ministry of Health has sent a letter requesting that an investigation be carried out in connection with Dr. Seigu Siyabdeen Mohammed Safi.

He said that since there were no affidavits and evidence in relation to the incident, there is no possibility of carrying out an investigation.

Once the Ministry receives the interim report of the committee appointed to carry out investigations regarding the doctor, even if the Medical Council is informed about it, the President said further that there is no way of carrying out investigations since there are no affidavits or evidence.

Meanwhile, the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital has received another 40 complaints today against Dr. Safi.

Accordingly, the number of complaints against the Doctor has risen to 381.
