Supreme Court rules Diana Gamage ineligible for parliamentary seat

Colombo, May 08 - The Supreme Court in another landmark judgment today held that State Minister Diana Gamage is disqualified to be a Member of Parliament and is thus not entitled to hold office as a Member of Parliament, as she was not a citizen of Sri Lanka.

With this Supreme Court judgment, Diana Gamage’s disqualification will lead to the loss of her parliamentary seat.

The Supreme Court three-judge-bench comprised  Justices Gamini Amarasekara, Kumuduni Wickremasinghe and Janak de Silva.

Counsel Hafeel Farisz with Nishika Fonseka and Shannon Thilekaratne appeared for Petitioner Oshala Herath.

Farman Cassim PC appeared for the Samagi Jana Balawegaya .
