The Inspector General of Police should reveal to the public the status of the investigation into the kidney transplant racket, the National Movement for Social Justice (NMSJ) informed.
Have the doctors who are said to be responsible been questioned? Have the information from the hospitals where the transplants are said to have been done, been obtained? Have the reports from India been brought down? Member of the General Committee of the NMSJ, Saman Ratnapriya queried.
He said that investigations like the ones into the murder of ruggerite, Wasim Thajudeen and the enforced disappearance and possible murder of journalist, Prageeth Ekneligoda, should be expedited. We hope that the incumbent Attorney General gives his recommendation soon regarding the Avant Garde floating armoury case, he added.
“The arrest of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son, Yoshitha Rajapaksa for money laundering is just one matter. All acts of fraud and corruption of the past, be it those involving the Carlton Sports Network or the sil redhi distribution case, must be revealed. Regarding murders, who committed them, must be revealed and those responsible must be brought to book. We cannot be satisfied about the status of certain investigations as the progress has been at a sluggish pace. Concerning the kidney transplant racket, a committee appointed by the Ministry of Health recently handed over their report to the Police and the responsibility of conducting the investigation is now with a Deputy Inspector General of Police of Colombo. There is also a report regarding the matter done by the Criminal Investigation Department in 2014. We have doubts whether the present investigation is taking place,” he noted.
