Court issues interim injunction banning EPDP member participating in the JMC sittings

The Appeal Court yesterday had issued an interim Injunction banning the EPDP Member of the Jaffna Municipal Council Suren Surenthiran from taking part in the sittings and voting of the Council up to August 3rd.

This Interim Injunction was delivered yesterday when a case filed by TNA member of the JMC Logathayalan  at the Appeal Court was taken up for hearing.

This case had been filed by JMC Member Logathayalan stating that Suren Surenthiran is a Sri Lankan Citizen living in Canada and holds dual Citizenship. On that basis, as he is having a dual Citizenship disqualify him as a JMC member. Hence Logathayalan had appealed that the membership of Surenthiran be declared cancelled.

The Court had asked Surenthiran appear in Court on 3rd August and show cause  as to on what basis he is serving as a member of the JMC, and had ordered him not to participate in the JMC sittings and in voting thereof.

TNA  MP, AAL Sumanthiran appeared on behalf of Logathayalan in the case.
