The South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) is legally eligible to issue medical degrees to the students, the Court of Appeal has ruled on Tuesday.


The Appellate Court has also directed the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) to give provisional registration to medical students passing out from SAITM, Ada Derana reporter said. 


The verdict was announced when the Writ Petition filed seeking an order questioning the decision of the SLMC on the SAITM, was taken up for hearing before a bench headed by Justice Vijith Malalgoda. 


The petition had been filed by an MBBS undergraduate as the SLMC refused to register a batch of medical students who had passed out from the SAITM last year.


The Ministry of Health had earlier also given an undertaking to the Supreme Court to provide clinical training to the students of the private medical college at the Avissawella Base Hospital and the Kaduwela MOH.
