584 complaints have been received up to now at the Kurunegala and Dambulla hospitals in relation to Dr. Siyabdeen Shafi who served at the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital and is at present in custody.

28 Complaints were received at the Kurunegala Hospital today and the number of overall complaints received is 505.

At the same time 14 women had arrived at the Dambulla Hospital today and submitted complaints. The number of overall complaints received there has risen to 65 as at present.

These mothers have alleged that subsequent to Caesarian operations they underwent under Dr. Siyabdeen Shafi they did not conceive later and that various complications had arisen.

The interim report of the six-member committee appointed by the Ministry of Health to investigate Dr. Siyabdeen Shafi is due to be handed over to the Ministry Secretary today.

Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Obstetricians and Gynaecologist Consultants’ Association said that it has focused strong attention on this incident.

Since any surgery that is done without the consent of the patient is against medical ethics such acts cannot be condoned in anyway, the Association said in a statement issued.

A statement with the signature of the President of that Association Professor Athula Kaluarachchige mentioned that the trust of the people in health services could be damaged due to this series of incidents and that the attention of the Association has been focused on the impact that it has had on Maternal Services in Sri Lanka.

The Association which recalls that it does not have any legal authority to carry out any investigations has said that authorities have made arrangements to carry out an expedited and transparent investigation into this matter, as of now.
