The Supreme Court yesterday directed the Attorney General to look into the possibility of recruiting medical graduates passed out from the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) in Malabe as government doctors.

The court made this order after considering a fundamental rights petition filed by three students of SAITM requesting court to grant them the opportunity to be recruited as government doctors.

They had pointed out in their petition that only the graduates passed out from state universities and foreign universities were eligible to be recruited as doctors according to the Medical Service Minute of Sri Lanka Health Service published in the gazette notification issued in October, 2014.

Since the graduates passed out from the degree awarding institutions have been excluded from being recruited as government doctors under the particular gazette notification, the petitioners had requested the court to annul the said minute and grant them the opportunity to be recruited as government doctors after being passed out from SAITM.

After considering the petition the court also instructed the Attorney General to look into the possibility of amending the said minute. (Thilini de Silva and Ranjan Katugampola)

    Good decision. We need more doctors and we should find out the avenues to produce them. Any shortcomings should be approached in a rational manner. via DM Android App

    If at present these graduates are unable to be recruited as doctors in government hospitals why did they attend this medical institute in the first place?

    Guys. anyway our lives at risk with the government doctors. The way they charge the people his inhuman. They don't know that they became doctors using public money. I am very much certain the quality and the humanity of doctors coming out of private Unis are very much higher quality than the students passed out from Government Unis.

    I can't imagine SC's direction. as I know some of these students only got two S for their A/L.
