A Fundamental Rights petition filed on behalf of Dr. Mohamed Shafi Shihabdeen of the Kurunegala Teaching hospital has been fixed for September 27.
The Supreme Court fixed the date to hear the revised petition when the matter was taken up in court today.
Mohamed Shafi filed a Fundamental Rights petition against his detention and arrest.
Lawyers appearing on behalf of Dr. Shaf sought to revise the FR petition which was approved by the Supreme Court.
Dr. Shafi was taken into custody on suspicion of links to a terrorist group, amassing of wealth and subsequent allegations that he forcibly sterilised women during C-section surgeries.
He was later released on bail and he was ordered to produce himself at the CID on every Sunday between 9 a.m and 12 p.m. (Colombo Gazette)
