Lawyers in North protest against death threats to Chaavakachcheari magistrate

[TamilNet, Monday, 03 May 2010, 10:31 GMT]
The lawyers practising in Chaavakachcheari court abstained from appearing in court Monday expressing their protest and condemnation against the death threat issued to their magistrate Pirabakaran allegedly by two Eelam Peoples Democraatic Party (EPDP) operatives, sources in Chaavakachcheari said. They were soon joined by all the lawyers of the courts in the districts of Jaffna, Vavuniyaa, Mannaar, Ki’linochchi and Mullaiththeevu paralyzing all activities in all the courts in the North, the sources added.

All trials and other activities that require the presence of lawyers in the court had to be postponed, bringing the courts to a standstill.

This is the first instance where the lawyers of North have launched a boycott of this nature.
