* SAITM parents complain to Police on displaying banners against the institute
Tue, Mar 14, 2017, 09:41 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 14, Colombo: The association of parents of the medical students at the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) yesterday lodged a complaint with Police Headquarters requesting the removal of banners that are on display at government hospitals against the Private Medical College.

The Malabe Medical College Parents' Association (MMCPA) handed over a letter to the Police Headquarters complaining about a poster campaign against the SAITM aimed at tarnishing the image of their children and the school.

President of the Parents Association Gemunu Wijeratne said that banners on display claim that their children are fake doctors and that the lives of patients are in danger.

He said some unions had put up these posters within the Health Ministry and around the government hospitals in order to tarnish the SAITM's image.

"A false propaganda is being carried out through these banners," he said and added that the Court has ruled that SAITM is already an established institute in this country.

The president of the association charged that the trade unions could be behind this 'mudslinging' campaign in order to create the conditions to close down the institute. The parents would not let that happen, he stressed.

Wijeratne expressed optimism that the police would undertake an inquiry immediately and remove the banners that are on display on Government property.
