    Contempt of court is a serious charge, this is the opportunity to put those vultures that call themselves doctors behind bars.

    Send Carlo Fonseka and Padeniya ( Pavadeniya) to spend the rest of their life in Jail.

    DD Thursday, 11 October 2018 03:55 PM

    Why Carlo Fonnseka? Don't you know he is no more at SLMC?

    @DD, don't you know that it was during his time that this verdict was blatantly disregarded?

    SLMC the lack of human demigod should be meted out punishment - give suspended sentence to all and debar from practicing - making them their own life in hell

    Even at this late stage if the Doctors act as men of integrity they might escape. If not they must be given the lesson of their life

    Court cant force SLMC to give registration for SAITM.If court can decide who will get registration for any country not only sri lanka why we need regularly body called SLMC.This is a bullshit decision by court . This is unethical overuse of court power.

    The Constitution of Sri Lanka gives the Supreme Court the full power to make the decision. The judiciary is the pillar of democrary that is empowered to interpret the law (the other two been the "legislature" which is empowered to make the law and the "executive" which is empowered to administer the law)

    Carlo Fonseka is the most immoral character to grace the Medical Teaching profession. This old shady codger set back Medical Education of the younger generation by 50 years. His son in the meantime is enjoying life in the "Capitalist West UK" that Carlo always harangues about.

    Similarly Wignes and Vasu rail against each community but are enjoying relationship happily.

    Ayotallah Thursday, 11 October 2018 06:28 PM

    The matter that has to be sorted out is whether the Supreme Court decision is applicable only for this petitioner or it is a decision on principle that ALL SAITM graduates is eligible for registration by SLMC after graduation. The answer is equally important

    Please SLMC, let's give a chance to students with 3S passes to become 'doctors'

    ET Thursday, 11 October 2018 10:37 PM

    Many 3S passes medical students are in government medical colleges too.

    Samson Thursday, 11 October 2018 09:21 PM

    All those so called doctors responsible for the calamity and made contempt of court must go behind bars with RI.

    Roy Friday, 12 October 2018 04:33 PM

    Carlo had his sabbatical leave in capitalist USA. Hypocrit.
