Suresh granted deportation stay order

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 28 January 1998, 23:59 GMT]
A Canadian Provincial court issued a stay order on the deportation of Tamil activist, Mr.Manickavasagam Suresh today. The stay order is effective until Mr. Suresh's constitutional claims are resolved.

Resolution of Mr. Suresh's constitutional claims could take several years, and hence the ruling makes it unlikely that he would be deported in the near future said sources close to his lawyers.

The hearing in the Federal court is to continue on February 6th. The Judge has requested lawyers from both sides to attend the hearing to agree on the conditions of Mr. Suresh's release should the court decide to release him.

Sources close to Mr. Suresh's lawyers said that there was a strong possibility of this being the case.
