Sri Lanka's Attorney General's (AG's) Counsel requested additional time to file his response to Tamil Rehabilitation Organization's (TRO’s) written submission on the question of whether the High Court of Colombo has the jurisdiction to “vary or vacate” it’s order to freeze the TRO Bank Accounts, when the High Court held hearings on the case today, legal sources for TRO said in a press release issued Monday. The Judge acceded to the Attorney General’s request and set Friday 15 December 2006 as the date for the Attorney General’s submission.

At the last hearing on 29 November 2006, TRO’s counsel and the Attorney General’s counsel submitted “written submissions” on the question of the High Court’s jurisdiction to hear the TRO appeal to “vacate or vary” the order freezing the TRO accounts.

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.
