GMOF takes Hirunika, Ranjan to task over their silence

Aloysius, Palisena in prison hospital


The Government Medical Officers Forum (GMOF) yesterday said it was disturbed by the silence of MPs Hirunika Premachandra and Ranjan Ramanayake on the admission of Arjun Aloysius and Kasun Palisena to prison hospital.

The GMOF President, Dr. Rukshan Bellana, issuing a statement said "About one year ago both these MPs through media condemned former MP Duminda Silva being treated in the prison hospital.

They humiliated the prison hospital doctors and demanded that they be transferred.

The doctors were accused of receiving money for admitting prisoners to the prison hospital.

Three doctors were transferred out of the prison owing to those allegations, but not even a charge sheet had been issued against them. Dr. Bellana said.

"Now,  we challenge those two MPs to protest against the hospitalisation of Arjun Aloysius and Kasun Palisena on the same day over identical diagnosis. Palisena was discharged on Sunday while Arjun is in Ward No 1 getting treated for so-called well known hilarious diagnosis which another doctor cannot challenge. 

"We request the Ministry of Health to commence a similar inquiry against the doctor admitted Arjun Aloysius and Kasun Palisena to the prison hospital."
