Opposition wants early debate over medical strike

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 29 June 1999, 11:48 GMT]
Twenty-five trade unions have organised protest at Lipton Circus near downtown Colombo, tomorrow, in support of the Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) said union sources. Meanwhile the leader of the main opposition United National Party, Mr.Ranil Wickremesinghe has sent a letter to Prime Minister Srimavo Bandaranaike urging her to summon Sri Lanka's Parliament immediately.

Mr. Wickremesinghe said in his letter that the present situation would be out of control by the time the Parliament meets on July 6, as has been scheduled.

Meanwhile, the medical staff and other employees of Vavuniya hospital called off their protests following the release of an abducted Gynaecologist early this morning around 3 a.m.

As his wife had registered a complaint with the Police when he went missing, the Police took him to assist their investigations into the abduction.

"The hospital staff had wanted to know if he was well, so the Police brought him here to see his colleagues and then took him back to the station," a hospital worker said.

Unknown persons abducted Dr.Mohideen on the night of June 26, while he was returning home after duty in the hospital.
