Court of Appeal on Tuesday reserved its order the preliminary objections raised by Northern Province Chief Minister C.V Wigneswaran in the contempt of court action filed against him by Provincial Council Minister B. Denishwaran.

Contempt of Court proceedings have been filed by B.Denishwaran alleging that Northern Province Chief Minister C.V Wigneswaran and Ananthi Sasitharan and K.Sivanesan have willfully acted in contempt of the Court of Appeal order since they prevented him from acting as a Minister of the Northern Province.

Northern Province Chief Minister and former Supreme Court Judge C.V. Wigneswaran and two others appeared before Court of Appeal yesterday over a complaint that they have intentionally acted in contempt of the Court of Appeal order.
