SL Supreme Court suspends P-TOMS inquiry

[TamilNet, Monday, 21 November 2005, 17:58 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Supreme Court Monday suspended the inquiry into the Post Tsunami Operations Management Structure (P-TOMS) petition. Chief Justice Sarath N.Silva announced that the inquiry into the petitions filed against the implementation of the P-TOMS is suspended indefinitely. The Chief Justice further extended the interim injunction on the implementation of the P-TOMS indefinitely, legal sources said.

The fundamental rights violation petitions filed by the thirty-nine parliamentarians of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP), and four members of the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) came up for further inquiry before the three-member bench of the Supreme Court.

The bench comprised Chief Justice Mr.Sarath N.Silva, Justice Raja Fernando and Justice Nihal Gamini Amarathunge, legal sources said.

After hearing the submission of the counsel of both sides the SC delivered its order with the consent of the parties in the dispute, legal sources said.

Mr.M.S.Jayasinghe, (Ministry of Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconciliation Secretary on behalf of the government) and Mr.S.Ranjan (on behalf of the LTTE) who signed the P-TOMS have been cited as the respondents in the FR petitions.
