President to meet striking doctors

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 30 June 1999, 19:18 GMT]
Sri Lanka State radio announced today that President Chandrika Kumaratunge was willing to talk directly to the Government Medical Officers' AssociationGMOA at Temple Trees on Friday at 12.45 p.m. The GMOA subsequently held an emergency meeting to discuss the President's offer.

The Colombo District Court also issued a statement over state radio saying that the Executive Committee members of the GMOA need not be present in Courts when the case against the organisation was heard, as they should carry out services to their patients.

The District Judge A.W.S Salaam has decided to continue the hearing of the case and the charges levelled against the GMOA.

A verdict will be given on the July 30.

Meanwhile an enjoining order issued against the GMOA will be taken up next Monday, said court sources.

The GMOA has been given until July 15 to file a statement of preliminary objection. The plaintiff has been given time until July 23.
