Police willing to provide security for docs

E-mail Print
The Police have agreed to provide doctors with adequate security upon consideration of any threats they might face in future.This was agreed at a discussion held today at the Police Headquarters with representatives of the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA)

Meanwhile the CID has taken over investigations into the grenade throwing incident. The investigations were previously conducted by the Dehiwala police. The CID team is led by a Superintendent of Police (SP).

 Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) member and a Colombo National Hospital Senior Surgeon Dr. Lalith Abaya Ranasinghe saw the hand grenade at around 8.15am on Thursday and informed the Dehiwela police soon afterwards.

 The incident resulted in an island wide strike by doctors which commenced at 8.00am yesterday.

 Police stated that the suspects may have thrown it on Wednesday night, however, the grenade had not exploded but the pin was open..  (By Supun Dias)

In case you are not aware, doctors are the only category of govt servants who work day and night, sometimes even 24 hours a day.

Not only the doctors get the tax deduced vehicle permit..Many other categories are entitled.But even some personal staff of the politicians who dont have any qualifications get an official vehicle.A vehicle is not a luxury ,but a necessity for a doctor to carry over his/her emergency duty.
Not all doctors have good private practice.And it is done sacrificing his/her spare time.Is a consultant in an area for like Vavuniya get the same private practice as in Colombo.

police is "willing" to provide, as though they are doing them a favour. You better provide, that is what you are paid for

I may not agree with the reasons they protest. But they should have the right to protest. CEB workers were threatened and now docs. Then later gov gives protection......hmm seems like tokkak anala oluwa athaganawa wage...

"The Police have agreed to provide doctors with adequate security upon consideration of any threats they might face in future."

What is this? is this a joke or what, Now that the governemnt accept that the country is not safe even for doctors. This is what we were talking all these time. The sense of security has no longer in this country. What next, what about the general public, who is going to protec them?

Do we have to migrate to another country, may be Australia
