SL Appeal Court to inquire into Ampaa'rai EPC election petition

[TamilNet, Friday, 13 June 2008, 17:28 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Court of Appeal Thursday decided to hold inquiry into the petition seeking the court to annul the Ampaa'rai district results of the Eastern Provincial Council election held on May 10 as the poll was heavily rigged with mass scale impersonation and intimidation of voters. The petitioners are Mohamed Thamby Hassan Ali of Ninthavoor and Daya Dharmapala Kilituwa of Ampa'raai. The petition was taken up for preliminary inquiry Thursday, legal sources said.

The Sri Lankan Court of Appeal Justice Sisira de Abrew issued notice on the Commissioner of Elections, Ampaa'rai District Government Agent, Ministers A.L.M.Athaullah, and Susantha Punchi Nilame and Chairmen of the Sri Lanka Rupavahini Corporation and Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation who have been cited as respondents to appear in court on July 11.

Another petition filed by two other opposition candidates seeking the court to annul the results of the Batticaloa district in the EPC election is pending in Court of Appeal for preliminary inquiry, according to legal sources.
