[TamilNet, Saturday, 01 December 2007, 10:13 GMT]
Three-member bench of the Sri Lankan Supreme Court this week fixed the inquiry into the fundamental rights petition filed in the forceful eviction of Tamils from lodges in Colombo for March 10 as the counsel for the petitioner agreed to consider the suggestion by the court to come to a compromise as the Sri Lankan Prime Minister had tendered an apology, legal sources said.

The FR petition filed by a Tamil trader Thambirajah Kanthasamy came up for inquiry before the bench presided by the Chief Justice Sarath Silva. Other members were justices Shiranee Tilakawardene and Jagath Balapattebendi

It was stated by the court that the interim order issued by the court on the Inspector General of Police against the forceful eviction of Tamils from lodges in Colombo without reasonable suspicion and valid reason is still in force.

The petitioner has cited the Inspector general of Police, officers –in-charge of Wellawatte, Kotahena, Wattala and Fort police stations, the Defence Secretary, Commanders of the three armed forces and the Attorney General as respondents.

President counsel K.Kannan Easwaran appeared for the petitioner.
