At that time the Attorney General’s counsel had requested that they be given additional time, until 11 December, to submit further “written submissions” in response to TRO’s submission.

Nearly US $800K has been frozen in TRO's bank accounts from 28th August 2006.

Mr. Romesh De Silva, President’s Counsel, Mr. Desmond Fernando, President’s Counsel, Mr. A.P. Niles, Attorney-at-Law, Mr. K. Ratnavale, Attorney-at-Law, and Mr. Gammi Senanayakke, Attorney-at-Law are appearing on behalf of TRO.
