Health Minister must state his opinion on AC ruling: GMOA

28 February 2017 05:40 pm - 11     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) today wrote to Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne to state his frank opinion on the Appeal Court ruling on the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) in Malabe instead making contradictory statements.

GMOA Secretary Dr. Naveen D. Zoysa told a media briefing that the Deputy Solicitor General (DSG) who appeared for Minister Senaratne had told courts that the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) was not empowered to visit private institutions such as the SAITM.

“It is surprising to note that the Minister’s counsel had made such a statement in court while outside Courts he had said the Health Ministry worked according to the recommendations of the SLMC. The minister should clearly state whether he advised the DSG to express the minister’s actual opinion on this matter,” Dr. Zoysa said.

Dr. Zoysa said a proper inquiry should be launched against the Deputy Solicitor General for acting against the instructions of his client, if he had expressed something that went against Minister Senaratne’s instructions. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    Dr Zoysa is nuts, When there is a court ruling any law abiding citizen will abide by it or appeal it to a higher court and wait for the higher court decision. This man is instigating the public against the ruling. As a law abiding person I am surprised as to why he is not charged for contempt

    There is no legally approved minimum standard for evaluation of the doctors in Sri Lanka. Further, there is no proper legal system for standardize and monitoring private universities. There may be some practices or norms for minimum standard for doctors which is followed by SLMC. Sri Lanka need separate and complete act for the private universities. All degree programs of the non-state universities should be standardized and monitored. People are paying money and they have right to get high quality degrees. GMOA is a trade union and it always consider the benefits of their members. Please don't lie to general public.
