Enjoining Order prevents CPSL action against Raja Collure
Colombo District Judge Aruna Aluthge yesterday (29) issued two enjoining orders to the party and the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Sri Lanka (CPSL) preventing the removal of Central Province Governor Raja Collure from the post of Party Chairman and the appointment of another person to the post.
Following a case filed by Collure, the Colombo Chief District Court issued the enjoining order which will be effective until November 12.
The General Secretary of the Party, Specialist Dr. G. Weerasinghe, Deputy Chairman Weerasumana Weerasinghe, former Secretary DEW Gunasekara and the Central Committee of the party are named as the accused in the case and the judge issued interim notices and injunction orders against the accused and directed them to appear in Court on November 12.
The prosecution contended that the decision taken by the Central Committee of the Party on October 24 to remove the chairmanship was an arbitrary act contrary to the Constitution of the Party and that an injunction should be issued against it in accordance with the law.
Attorney-at-Law Murshid Maharoof and others appeared on the instructions of Attorney-at-Law Myomi Ranawaka for the prosecution.
