The PCoI issued summons on 17 parties including Dissanayake and Abeysekara to appear before the Commission on July 16 with regard to the complaint lodged by the Chairman of Avant-Garde Nissanka Senadhipathi on the alleged loss occurred to his company due to arbitrary takeover.

Jayatilake, Chandra Fernando, Secretary of the PCoI, Attorney General Dappula de Livera, Senior State Counsel Janaka Bandara and Chairman of Avant-Garde Nissanka Senadhipathi have been named as defendents of the writ application.   


In the petition, Dissanayake pointed out that according to the gazette notification issued on January 09 with regard to establishment of the PCoI on political victimisation, the Commission is only empowered to investigate complaints made by public servants.
