* Supreme Court to hear appeal filed by SLMC challenging lower court's order on SAITM
Tue, May 9, 2017, 07:26 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 09, Colombo: The Supreme Court will hear the appeal filed by Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) challenging a lower court's order on the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine Limited (SAITM).

The Supreme Court bench comprised Justice Buwaneka Aluvihare, Justice Priyantha Jayawardena and Justice Nalin Perera, fixed the SLMC appeal for support on May 31, today.

The SLMC appeal challenges the January 31 ruling of the Court of Appeal to register a student of South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine Limited (SAITM) in Malabe provisionally as a medical practitioner in terms of section 29(2) of the Medical Ordinance.

The SLMC seeks to null the judgment dated January 31, 2017 by Court of Appeal.

The Appellate Court ruled that the medical degree granted by the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) is lawful and the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) should recognize and grant provisional registration to the school's medical graduates.
