Advocates in Tamil Nadu announce indefinite court boycott

[TamilNet, Friday, 30 January 2009, 06:39 GMT]
Demanding the International Community to impose sanctions on Sri Lanka and calling for the resignation of Indian External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee for his approach to the Tamil issue, the Madras High Court Advocates Association Thursday called for an indefinite boycott of courts. The Tamil Nadu Advocates Association, the other major lawyers collective, has also asked its members to abstain from court proceedings for the next one week.

Madras High Court Advocates Association President Paul Kanagaraj has called for a association meeting Tuesday to chart out the future course of action.

Likewise, the Tamil Nadu Advocates Association President S Prabakaran has urged the Center to take steps to stop the genocide of Tamils.

These knee-jerk reactions come as a show of support to Eelam Tamils.

Following Muthukumar's self-immolation, advocates raised slogans within the High Court campus and burnt copies of 'anti-Tamil' dailies.

According to news-reports in Chennai, a group of advocates have also 'ransacked' the Bank of Ceylon office in Chennai damaging the property. Consequently, additional security has been posted at the Sri Lankan Consulate in the city.
