Court extends interim injunction on P-TOMS

[TamilNet, Monday, 12 September 2005, 16:48 GMT]
Sri Lanka's Supreme Court Monday extended its interim injunction on the implementation of certain clauses of the Pre-Tsunami Operational Management Structure (P-TOMS) till November 22 and fixed the inquiry into the petition filed by the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) seeking the cancellation of the P-TOMS on the same date, legal sources said.

The Supreme Court in July issued interim injunction on the implementation of certain clauses of the P-TOMS including the establishment of its headquarters in Killinochchi on the JVP petition and put off the further inquiry for September 12.

When the JVP petition along with five other petitions came up for inquiry against the P-TOMS agreement on Monday, counsel for the first respondent Mr.M.S.Jayasinghe, Secretary of Reconciliation, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction ( RRR) Ministry submitted to court that the government is unable to implement the P-TOMS agreement signed with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) because of the interim injunction of the Supreme Court.

The Counsel further submitted to court that the government is unable to obtain any assistance from various countries for the implementation of tsunami relief and rehabilitation projects due to the non-functioning of the P-TOMS, legal sources said.

Chief Justice Mr.Sarath N.Silva interrupted and said that there is no obstruction to implement the P-TOMS subject to interim injunction order on certain clauses issued by the court, legal sources said.

The JVP in its petition cited RRR Ministry Secretary Mr.Jayasinghe, LTTE Planning Deputy Head Mr.Ranjan and the Attorney General as respondents.
