Following a court order nullifying the recent re-election of Government Medical Officers’ Association President Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya and its executive committee, the GMOA Office keys and assets have been handed over to its trustees Dr. Chandika Epitakaduwa and Dr. Saman Abyewardena.

Trustee Dr. Chandika Epitakaduwa told The Island that he had taken charge of the keys and property of the GMOA head office.
