0 114

Sri Lanka Rugby (SLR) yesterday said they would not take any action against its current President Rizly Illyas despite a controversial directive given by the Minister of Sports Roshan Ranasinghe. SLR Lawyer Attorney-at-Law Shantha Jayawardhane informed the position of SLR to the Courts when a petition filed by Illyas was taken up for consideration. The petitioner stated that the letter issued by the Minister of Sports to SLR demanding his suspension was illegal and requested interim relief by way of a writ.

Appearing for the petitioner, PC Faiz Musthafa argued that the Minister of Sports did not have power to remove or suspend Illyas and pointed out such removal or suspension could only be carried out by SLR. The said petition was taken up by the Appellate Court Bench comprising Justice Sobhitha Rajakaruna and justice Dhammika Ganepola. Presenting the facts on behalf of SLR, Attorney Shantha Jayawardhane extended a pledge that SLR would not take any action against Illyas until January 27, 2023.
