Court extends remand of Mohamed Shafi until July 25; his detention withdrawn

Dr Mohamed Shafi

Kurunegala Magistrate Sampath Kariyawasam on Thursday extended the remand of Dr. Mohamed Shafi of the Kurunegala Hospital until July 25 pending investigations.

Deputy Solicitor General Thusith Mudalige told the Kurunegala Magistrate’s Court yesterday that the three-month detention order against Dr. Mohamed Shafi Shihabdeen had been withdrawn as the evidence presented against him was inadequate to prove that he was linked to terrorist activities.

The charge against Dr. Shihabdeen is allegedly amassing assets through suspicious means, sterilizing women without their consent and having links to terrorist activities.

Court rejected a request for bail having taken into consideration seriousness of the charges made against the suspect and to prevent public turmoil.
