[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 November 2001, 21:44 GMT]
The Supreme Court Tuesday decided to inquire into the fundamental Rights application filed by Trincomalee's Senior Superintendent of Police against his transfer after the dissolution of parliament. A three-member bench of the Supreme Court, comprising Justices Mark Fernando, P.Edusuriya and Hector S.Yapa directed that the transfer of the petitioner be suspended till November 27, and put off the inquiry for a later date.

In the meantime, a three member bench of the Supreme Court comprising Chief Justice Sarath N.Silva, Justices C.V.Vigneswaran and Asoka de Silva Tuesday put off for November 28 the inquiry into the fundamental rights application filed by Mr.Karu Jayasuriya, Deputy Leader of the United National Party, against the transfer of 73 police officers after the dissolution of parliament.

In both cases, the petitioners have stated in their petitions that the transfers of these Police officers have violated their fundamental rights.
