JVP, JHU to appeal court order on CFA

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 March 2007, 10:09 GMT]
The Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) and all monks' party, Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU), Wednesday said they will appeal the order of the Court of Appeal dismissing their petitions seeking the cancellation of the Ceasefire Agreement (CFA) signed by the then Sri Lanka' Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe with Velupillai Pirapaharan, leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), on 22 February 2002, legal sources in Colombo said. Justice S.Sriskandarajah Tuesday said the petitioners have no valid legal reasons to seek the cancellation of the CFA and the court has no jurisdiction to order such act.

Spokesmen of JVP and JHU said that they were not satisfied with the order of the Court of Appeal, which stated it has no legal authority to entertain such petitions.

JVP and JHU in their petitions said Mr. Wickremasinghe has not obtained permission from the Executive Presidency to sign a ceasefire agreement with the LTTE.

Petitioners sought the Appeal Court to issue a writ canceling the CFA with immediate effect.

Spokespersons of JHU and JVP said they would file their appeals in the Supreme Court shortly challenging the order of the Appeal Court.
