Bhikku Front and Patriotic Movement file cases against P-TOMS

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 28 June 2005, 16:42 GMT]
The National Bhiku Front (NBF) led by Ven Dambara Amila Thero and the National Patriotic Movement (NPM) led by Venerable Elle Gunawanse Thero have filed separate cases on Tuesday asking the Colombo District Court to make the P-TOMS null and void, legal source in Colombo said.

The two organisations in their submission to the District Court have pointed out that the P-TOMS signed between the Government and the LTTE last Friday was against the unity and the intergrity of Sri Lanka and will pave way for political calamity in the future.

Propaganda secretary of Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), Mr Wimal Weerawansa, also accompanied the National Patriotic Movement Ven Gunawansa Thera on the capacity as one of the founder members of the movement, sources said.

The National Bhiku Movement and the National Patriotic Movement have mentioned the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Ministry Secretary M.S.Jayasinghe and the LTTE representative Shumugalingam Ranjan who signed the P-TOMS as the respondents along with the Attorney General, and the Secretary to the President.
