Hospital money diverted to MoD

[TamilNet, Sunday, 02 August 1998, 23:59 GMT]
A sum of 3.5 million rupees earmarked for the rehabilitation of hospitals in the Northeast has been channeled to the Ministry of Defence (MoD), said sources in Jaffna.

In a letter to all regional directors of health services (RDHS), the Secretary, Northeast Provincial Ministry of Health has said that work on repairs and the rehabilitation of hospitals should be suspended forthwith.

This has however put hospital authorities in an embarrassing position because in some hospitals tenders have been called to award contracts for the work, while in others work has already begun, said sources.

No details are available as for what exactly monies will be utilised, except that they have been channeled to the MoD, said sources.
