JMO to investigate Jaffna skeletons

[TamilNet, Monday, 29 March 1999, 20:41 GMT]
Legal sources in Jaffna said that the Jaffna district Judicial Medical Officer (JMO), Ram Manohar, who is currently in Colombo will arrive on or before April 6 to investigate the site near the Duraiappa stadium where Jaffna Municipal workers found human skeletons on Friday March 26.

They said that he will collect more bones of the human skeletons buried at the site discovered on Friday under the supervision of Jaffna's additional magistrate S.A.E Ekanaathan.

Three plastic bags of bones from the skeletons discovered in the pit dug by Municipal council workers were collected on Saturday by a medical officer of the Jaffna hospital on instructions issued by the additional magistrate.

The bags were sealed in separate boxes in the presence of Mr.S.A.E Ekanaathan to be sent to Colombo for forensic examination.

A section of the Tamil press reported yesterday that the three boxes containing the bones from the human skeletons found in the pit had already been sent to Colombo for investigation.

Court sources in Jaffna, however, said that the boxes have not yet been sent to the capital.
