JVP files case against UPFA
The judiciary in Sri Lanka have allowed the petitioners to amend a case against the Cease Fire Agreement (CFA) signed between the government and the Tamil Tigers.
The petitioners, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) anfd Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) were allowed to site the cabinet of ministers of the current government headed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the respondents.
The JVP and the JHU argued that the CFA signed between the then Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and the LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran is against the constitution of Sri Lanka.
The Appeals Court has been urged to rule that the CFA is invalid.
The cabinet of ministers of Wickramasinghe government and the LTTE leader have initially been sited as the respondents.
The petitioners requested the courts to send notice to the Tamil Tiger leader via LTTE peace secretariat in Kilinochchi.
The hearing was postponed to 29 March.
