Colombo (News 1st): The Supreme Court today (July 23) ordered the Sri Lanka Medical Council to register students who have completed medical degrees in recognized foreign universities and also passed the SLMC examinations, thus allowing such students to engage in the medical profession in the country.

The order was handed down after examining a fundamental rights petition filed by 16 medical graduates, who the SLMC had rejected to register, although they had completed their degrees in foreign universities and also passed the subsequent examination held by the SLMC.

The petition was examined by supreme court justices Prasanna Jayawardena, L.T.B. Dehideniya and Murdu Fernando.

The Supreme Court further ordered the SLMC to register the relevant degree holders within a period of 30 days and also ordered the SLMC to take the relevant steps to enrol the students for internships.
