Colombo to file objections to P-TOMS stay order

[TamilNet, Friday, 22 July 2005, 13:49 GMT]
Within the legal framework, the Government will canvass its case in favor of the Post Tsunami Operational Management Structure, cabinet spokesman Nimal Siripala De Silva said Friday. Speaking to reporters at a press briefing in COlombo Mr. Silva said that lawyers for the Government will file objections in the Supreme Court on July 29th regarding the Court ruling that imposed an interim order on the implementation of four vital clauses of the Bill.



“We are willing to bow to any decision of the Supreme Court but within the legal framework we will canvass our case,” he said.

The Supreme Court will hear the case again on September 12 before which both side have been asked to file written objections.

The JVP petitioned the Supreme Court against the P.TOMS agreement saying it infringed on their fundamental rights enshrined by the Constitution and wanted it declared null and void.

The Court said the entire agreement could not be ruled unconstitutional but said four clauses were illegal.
