GMOA call off strike action

The strike action launched by government doctors today has been called off fallowing discussions, the Government Medical Officers Association said.

Earlier today the Colombo District Court issued an enjoining order, effective for 14 days, preventing the strike, demanding transport allowances promised by the government.

The enjoining order was issued by Judge Dammika Ganepala after considering a petition filed by a patient admitted at the Colombo National Hospital, naming the GMOA as respondents.

The petitioner had requested that the enjoining order be issued, citing that the lives of patients were in danger due to not receiving proper treatment as a result of the strike action launched by doctors.
