Vanni doctors back at work

All four doctors who served in the Tiger held territory in Vanni and Mullaitivu districts were reinstated in the government health service.

“I am appointed as the additional provincial director for the North and this office deliver medical supplies to five districts” Dr T. Sathiyamoorty told BBC Sandeshaya.

Dr T. Sathiyamoorty was the Killinochchi Regional Director of Health Services (RDSH) when the area was under the LTTE.

He along with Mullaitivu RDHS Dr Thurairaja Varatharajan, Dr Ilancheliyan Pallavan, Dr K, Shanmugarajah were detained by the military and have been released on bail since end of August.

“Other three doctors have been appointed as planning Medical Officers at the provincial level” Dr. Sathiyamoorty said.

Happy to rejoin

“Dr Varatharajan has been appointed as a planning medical officer of the provincial office, Dr Shanmugarajah has been appointed as a Medical Officer for Vauniya and Dr Illncheliyan has gone to the University of Colombo to continue his higher studies.

“We are happy to rejoin the service” Dr Sathiyamoorty added.

He is of the view that the court case against him and the other doctors will continue and said “the next hearing is on the 9th November”.

Dr Sathiyamoorty said all of them have to report to the Criminal Investigation Department every month, and is hopeful that they will be released soon.
