Thu, May 10, 2018, 01:18 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 10, Colombo: The Court of Appeal today postponed the case against the president of Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya who was charged with contempt of court.

When the case was called today before the two-judge bench of Appeal Court Chairman Preethi Padman Surasena and Justice Arjuna Obeysekara, the attorneys appearing on behalf of the plaintiff requested a date for the relevant case to be heard.

Accordingly, it was decided by the court to commence the hearing on June 5.

Two civil society activists had filed a contempt of court action in the Court of Appeal against Dr. Padeniya for allegedly undermining the Court of Appeal judgment dated January 31, 2017, which was delivered compelling the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) to register the MBBS graduates of the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) provisionally as medical practitioners in terms of the Medical Ordinance.

National Movement for Social Justice (NMS) Convener Prof. Sarath Wijesuriya and the Puravesi Balaya Co-convener Gamini Viyangoda filed the petition against Dr. Padeniya.
