AG seeks Full Bench to hear FR against ex Inspector General of Police, ex Defence Secretary

SC SL 700 01

The Attorney General has sought the Supreme Court to nominate a full bench of judges to consider fundamental rights petitions filed against the former Inspector General of Police Pujith Jayasundera and former Secretary to Defense Ministry Hemasiri Fernando allegedly for failure of authorities to prevent the Easter Sunday bombings.

Additional Solicitor General Farsana Jameel, appearing on behalf of the Attorney General, moved the motion and stated that this was a matter of national importance.

Attorney-at-Law Gamini Perera appearing for the petitioners, Janak Sri Vidanage, a businessman in tourism industry and Saman Nandana Sirimanna, a resident from Wellampitiya, stated that he had no objection to the request made by the Attorney General.

Attorney Krishmal Warnasuriya appearing for a group of citizens raised objection to the motion by the Attorney General and urged the Court to hear the petition without postponement since it is a fundamental rights petition under ordinary procedure.

Court directed that the matter be referred to the Chief Justice and postponed the hearings to June 6th.

The three Bench comprised Justices Sisira de Abrew, Murdu Fernando and Gamini Amarasekara.
