Additional security for doctors

A decision has been taken by the Government to provide additional security for all the doctors serving at Vavuniya Hospital and all the other hospitals in the area, a Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry spokesman said.

He said the decision has been taken following a special meeting held with President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Healthcare and Nutrition Minister Nimal Siripala De Silva, Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry Secretary Dr. Athula Kahandaliyanage and Defence Ministry officials.

According to the spokesman three high level officials from the Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry were in Vavuniya and they have been instructed by the Ministry Secretary Dr. Kahandaliyanage to hold discussions with relevant parties to ensure that the doctors receive adequate additional protection.

Investigations are going on with the assistance of the Security Forces in connection with the killing of a Doctor who was attached to Vavuniya hospital. He was killed by an unknown gunman on Monday night. He was a very popular and dedicated doctor, he added.
