The petitioner had been admitted at first to the University of Sri Jayawardenapura
on the result of the GCE ‘A’ Level examination 1978, and had followed a course
in Biological Sciences. The Petitioner had sat again for the GCE ‘A’ Level 1979,
and was informed that she was qualified to be admitted to the Faculty of Medicine.
In her application in 1981 for admission the petitioner had made a declaration
that she had not been previously registered to follow a course of study in any
other University.
This declaration had been proved to be false by the Inquirer in his Report of
4.7.1988 and the respondent had in execution of the recommendation expelled
the petitioner. However by letters of 22.11.1994 and 27.01.1995, the respondent
had rescinded that decision but had withheld the publication of the results of the
MBBS Final examination 1987. The petitioner sought a writ of certiorari to quash
the decision to cancel the petitioner’s Registration as a student of the University
of Ruhuna where she had been following a course in Medicine and a writ of
Certiorari to compel the respondents to release the 1987 MBBS Final Examination
results for which examination the petitioner had sat in July, 1987.
