(Lanka-e-News-14.Feb.2017, 11.30PM) Every citizen of the country who is aggrieved or is a victim of injustice has a right to seek redress via the courts and not via the executive . The SAITM students sought court redress duly therefore , and the court after hearing all sides delivered its verdict duly . Hence the Executive is bound to carry out the court order duly, while the only thing the executive can do of his own accord is raise the standard of medical education and introduce ways and means towards that end . Hence he cannot act unheeding the court order , a senior eminent lawyer revealed to Lanka e news .
This revelation was made by the senior lawyer when Lanka e news inquired from him about the statement purportedly made by the president following the discussion held by Padeniyas , Soysas, their terror organization , and another association of Dental doctors with the president .
The president has told , the proposals and recommendations made by all the parties shall be submitted to the special committee of experts appointed by the president . Thereafter based on the recommendations made by this committee , the president will take a final decision .
The opinion expressed by the senior legal luminary pertaining to these developments is : The president cannot in any case act in transgression of the court order. All what the president can do while implementing the decision of the court is register the SAITM Institution and raise the standard of medical education . Moreover ,in case the appeal court decision is subjected to a review of the Supreme court (SC) by the medical board ,the ultimate decision which will prevail is that of the SC , and not president’s, the senior lawyer emphatically pinpointed.
The senior lawyer repudiated the false statements made by Padeniyas and Soysas (who have broken world records in lying) , and their terror organization -GMOA that they were not given an opportunity to be a party to the case aforementioned . He pointed out , three members have been appointed to the medical board by the Padeniyas’ GMOA , and since the medical board was involved in the case , ipso facto means the GMOA is a party to the case.
Profesor Carlo Fonseka the president of the medical council who gave evidence in the case revealed to the media , ‘irrespective of the decision delivered by the court the students will not be registered.’ This self centered obstinacy alone demonstrates the fanatical propensity and their extremist stance, that they are not ready to obey the sacrosanct laws of the country , and prefer to act like the terrorists , the legal luminary observed.
The laws of the country permits to remove the president of the medical council who is refusing to abide by the laws (an outlaw) , and replace him with another . Since that power is vested in the minister of health , he should take the crucial decision, the senior lawyer elaborated.
Meanwhile , the minister of higher education speaking to the media lamented , it is the medical council that should be blamed owing to its recalcitrant attitude and obstinate conduct imitating a stubborn mule.
When the medical council was made a most justifiable request to permit the graduates passing out from SAITM to sit the exam conducted by the medical council , and register those who are successful , the council rejected that too. The SAITM students went to courts only thereafter . Now that the sacrosanct court has delivered a verdict , everyone must abide by that decision . If not that will be tantamount to committing contempt of court , Kiriella clearly explained.
