SC issues notice on UNP leaders

12 March 2015 12:53 pm - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Supreme Court today issued notices on UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe, Secretary General Kabeer Hashim and other respondents through the petitioner sequent to a petition filed by former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake against his expulsion from the party.

Accordingly, the matter was fixed to be mentioned on March 19.

Mr. Attanayake, who crossed over to the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) during the presidential election, had cited UNP leader, Secretary General and all members of the Working Committee as respondents.

He stated that after the defeat of the former President, he had been arrested and remanded on a charge of preparing fraudulent documents on February 2 and was bailed out on February 11.

While he was in remand, he received a letter from the UNP stating that he had been expelled from the Party.

Mr. Attanayake stated that party decision to expel him was unlawful and contrary to natural justice without giving him an opportunity to explain his views. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    How immoral this man to say that he did everything according to law. When chef justice was impeached with bogus accusations and your government installed the most corrupt chief justice who was giving thief justice to the people of Sri Lanka. Please leave

    Tissa Attanayake did something wrong, and was expelled from the Party. There is nothing wrong in being punished for the wrong committed by him, as it was a shameful act. He should accept the fact and retire from Politics as he has behaved in a despicable manner, without trying to fool everybody that he is a saint. Shameless creature!

    Shame has no limits and boundaries,more he defends deeper he digs himself.
