The hearing into the Fundamental Right petitions filed in the Supreme Court challenging the dissolution of Parliament resumed a short while ago.

The Supreme Court on November 13 granted leave to proceed with the fundamental rights petitions which sought a court order nullifying the presidential proclamation dissolving parliament and the petitions were fixed for argument on December 4, 5 and 6.

The Chief Justice nominated a fuller Bench comprising Chief Justice Nalin Perera, Justices Buwaneka Aluwihare, Sisira J. de Abrew, Priyantha Jayawardena, Prasanna S. Jayawardena, Vijith K. Malalgoda and Murdu Fernando of the Supreme Court to hear the fundamental rights petitions following a request made by the government.

    Yes, I agree with you. The same time illegally appointed PM and the cabinet should go home too.

    If verdict goes against MS then it is impartial and if it goes against RW then they are biased. Come on guys. The best solution to an issue like this is A GENERAL ELECTION... even a small kid can figure that out.

    I am confident that our judges will show the world that they are not influenced and they are in full control...
