Mr. Mayuran, District Judge of Thamileelam court in Trincomalee and Mr.Maniarasan, Killinochchi District Judge of Thamileelam Courts also participated in the event.

Mr.Tilak said, "Upto now more than twenty three thousand cases have been disposed by Thamileelam courts in our area. Only five percent of the litigants have appealed against judgments given by Thamileelam district courts. This shows that more than ninety five percent of the litigants are satisfied with the dispensation of justice by the Thamileelam courts." Sri Lankan courts take more than two years on the average to dispose a case. But our Thamileelam courts dispose cases generally within six months. Furthermore the language of administration of our courts in northeast is Tamil, said Mr.Tilak.
