Jaffna lawyers announce boycott of Courts

[TamilNet, Monday, 28 April 2008, 16:27 GMT]
Northern Bar Association of Sri Lanka (NBSL) decided in its Saturday meeting in Jaffna to launch a boycott of all Courts of Law in the Jaffna peninsula from 2 May until the section allocated for the use of their members in the newly opened judicial complex is made available, Ms. Shantha Abimannasingam, Zonal Vice President of NBSL said. Failure of any constructive measure to be taken despite NBSL discussions on this issue with the Attorney General and key officials of the Justice Ministry has forced us to resort to boycott, she added.

The library, consultation hall and canteen for the use of lawyers allocated in the newly opened judicial complex in Jaffna are yet to be made available according to the time schedule agreed upon and the Monday boycott will continue until they are made available, the Vice President said.

The magistrate court and high court in Jaffna town besides the Chaavakacheari courts in Thenmaraadchi, Point Pedro court in Vadamaraadchi, Mallaakam court in Valikaamam, Kayts court in the islets of Jaffna will be forced to cease functioning when the lawyers of Jaffna launch their planned boycott.
