Dr. Shafi receives pay arrears, donates them to purchase essential medicines

Source

Dr. Shafi Sahabdeen of the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital has decided to donate his arrears wages for the purchase of essential medicines at hospitals, following the overdue received by the Health Ministry.

Shafi, who was falsely accused of performing sterilising procedures on 4000 Sinhalese Buddhist women, had lodged a complaint with the Appeal Court and the Court ordered that his overdue be repaid before July 10, 2022.

Accordingly, the medical officer has received Rs. 2,675,816.48 as wages, which he has decided to donate for the purchase of essential medicines.

The series of events surrounding Shafi this year, accordingly, ends a racist chapter opened by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) for narrow political benefits.
