Government doctors have voiced concern over the delayed release of a committee report into the medicines that caused fatal complications.
The GMOA identified this delay as a significant shortcoming in the process.
Its spokesman Dr. Chamil Wijesinghe emphasized the importance of releasing the inquiry report before taking any subsequent steps, including legal action.
Noting the inadequacy of domestic laboratories for assessing quality, he said it necessitated seeking facilities beyond borders, namely in Australia or Singapore.
Meanwhile, president of the Association of Health Professionals Ravi Kumudesh said a report by an expert committee into the medicines issue needed to be made public immediately.
