The Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) yesterday decided to appeal against the Appeal Court decision on the Malabe private medical college-SAITM (South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine) issue to the Supreme Court within the next 42 days.

A senior spokesman for the SLMC said that after deliberations which lasted over three hours, the Council had decided to appeal against the Court of Appeal judgement which called for it to give provisional registration to medical graduates of the SAITM.

The Appeal Court directed the SLMC end of last month to give provisional registration to medical students passing out from SAITM. The decision was the result of a writ petition filed by an MBBS graduate as the SLMC refused to register a batch of medical graduates who had passed out from  the Private Medical College in Malabe last year.

Appeal Court President Justice Vijith Malalgoda presided over the bench that issued the judgment on January 31. The bench also comprised Justice S Thurairajah.
