Court grants SLFP MP permission to challenge appointment of Justice Minister as Party Chairman

May 16, Colombo (LNW): The Colombo District Court yesterday (15) granted permission to Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) MP Duminda Dissanayake to present arguments concerning an injunction order challenging the appointment of Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe PC as the SLFP Chairman.

The court’s decision on whether to issue an enjoining order will be delivered today (16).

Romesh de Silva PC, appearing for Rajapakshe, raised objections, questioning the maintainability of the plaint since the Kaduwela District Court has already issued an order preventing any faction from interfering with the Justice Minister’s role as the party Chairman.

Chandaka Jayasundere PC appearing for Dissanayake countered that the Kaduwela District Court’s order would not impact this particular case.

Accordingly, Colombo District Court Judge Sandun Vithana announced that the decision regarding the enjoining order will be delivered today morning.

The plaintiff, Dissanayake, is seeking an enjoining order to prevent Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe PC and Attorney-at-Law Keerthi Udawatta from functioning as SLFP Chairman and Acting General Secretary, respectively.

Additionally, the plaintiff seeks a declaration that all decisions taken during an executive committee meeting held on May 12 this year are invalid.
