NPC CM prepares to face contempt of court case engineered by Sumanthiran et al

[TamilNet, Monday, 03 September 2018, 22:15 GMT]
The justice system of the unitary state of genocidal Sri Lanka has been deployed against the Northern Provincial Council as the TNA Parliamentarian and President's Counsel M.A. Sumanthiran was making another die-hard move to weaken the position of the NPC Chief Minister and former Supreme Court Justice C.V. Wigneswaran through furnishing new cases. The latest in the series is a contempt of court case, filed against him and two of his ministers, Ananthy Sasitharan and K. Sivanesan. The case comes amidst an appeal filed by NPC Chief Minister against the interim order issued by the SL Court of Appeal, pending a scheduled hearing on Wednesday. However, the NPC CM is fully prepared to address the challenge, informed sources in Jaffna told TamilNet on Monday. It is not the reputation of the NPC CM, but that of the SL Justice System, getting exposed, political observers in Jaffna said.

While the NPC CM has appealed against the interim order issued by the SL Court of Appeal in Colombo staying the removal of former NPC Fisheries and Transport Minister P Deniswaran last year, Mr Deniswaran, a lawyer himself, has been influenced by Mr Sumanthiran to seek contempt of court orders against the NPC Chief Minister and two of his ministers. By failing to re-instate the ex-NPC minister, they have been discourteous towards the court order is the argument of Sumanthiran and Deniswaran.

Mr Sumanthiran, who is an ardent disciple of the so-called Singapore-principles based discourse enacted by the Western powers, has been trying to oust the Chief Minister by engineering a no-confidence move last year. The move was engineered and backed by the Western actors and their NGO outfits, ranging from the Netherland government agencies to the IMF, as revealed last year. Norway was also alleged of indirectly backing the move.

However, the attempt was foiled when the grassroots in Jaffna mobilised against the move and condemned Ilangkai Thamizh Arasuk Kadchi (ITAK), the main constituent party of the TNA for conspiring with Colombo’s ruling sections against the NPC CM.

After facing the defeat in the move to oust Justice Vigneswaran and receiving a lesson in the local elections in the North, Mr Sumanthiran, who is alleged of functioning as an agent of the external powers, is conspiring with SL Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe and SL Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera, to curb Justice Vigneswaran from advancing rights-oriented politics in the North.

In the meantime, ITAK leader R. Sampanthan, who is also the opposition leader in the SL Parliament, has been dodging to meet with Justice Vigneswaran face-to-face, an informed source in Colombo told TamilNet on Monday.

Sampanthan wants to meet Vigneswaran only after seeing the effects of the cases pending hearings at the SL courts.

The octogenarian ITAK leader is not prepared to discipline Sumanthiran and Deniswaran.

With the latest move, Mr Sumanthiran is hammering the final nail of Sampanthan's thoroughly discredited political career, political observers in Jaffna commented.
