The All Ceylon Medical Officers Association (ACMOA) says it will lodge a complaint with the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL), against the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC).

The ACMOA in a statement alleged that a move is also underway to legalize the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM), which had been operating illegally for the past eight years.

Dr. Jayantha Bandara, the secretary of the ACMOA, stated that due to the lack of clinical practice the students at the institute are exposed to, they are not ready to be registered as practicing doctors, although the SLMC is allegedly prepared to register them as medical practitioners.
