Petition seeks re-appointment of Yapa and Susil
August 24, 2015 05:54 pm
A petition has been filed at the Colombo District Court requesting to revoke the previous enjoining order issued to prevent Anura Priyadharshana Yapa and Susil Premajayantha from acting and discharging duties as the General Secretaries of the SLFP and UPFA.
The petition was filed by Attorney at Law Aruna Laksiri, Ada Derana reporter said.
The District Court earlier issued the enjoining order to prevent Yapa and Premajayantha from acting and discharging duties as the General Secretaries of the SLFP and UPFA respectively until August 28, 2015.
President Maithripala Sirisena in his capacity as the Chairman of the SLFP and UPFA has suspended the party memberships of Yapa and Premajayantha and has also removed them from the posts of General Secretary.
The President later appointed Minister Duminda Dissanayake as the Acting General Secretary of the SLFP and ex-Minister Prof. Vishwa Warnapala as Acting General Secretary of UPFA.
Consequently Duminda Dissanayake and Prof. Warnapala have sought an enjoining order to prevent the former General Secretaries from carrying out duties in their former capacities.
The petition will be taken up for hearing on 28 August.
