Batticaloa Bar Association protests against contempt of court shown by extremist monks

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 25 September 2019, 17:48 GMT]
Tamil and Muslim lawyers of Batticaloa Bar Associaton boycotted their work on Wednesday expressing their solidarity with the Tamil lawyers from Jaffna and Mullaiththeevu who were allegedly assaulted by the extremist Buddhist monks on Monday. The representatives of the bar association described the events that unfolded at Neeraaviyadi on Monday as contempt of court both in word and deed.



The monks were fully aware of the preliminary injunction that had been issued by the Magistrate's Court in Mullaiththeevu, the lawyers in Batticaloa said.

The Tamil lawyers went to the spot following the invitation extended by the Sinhala lawyers who represented the monks. However, they were humiliated by the monks.

The monks also claimed that Buddha Sasana was superior to court orders.

Such an act cannot go unchecked, the lawyers in Batticaloa said.
