Northern Power Company has requested the court to take the case regarding waste oil seepage into well in areas including Chunnakam, against them for hearing.
This case came up for hearing before Mallakam courts day before yesterday. The Colombo Appeal court had ordered that this case be heard and solved in the Mallakam Court. The company lawyer submitted a copy of the Appeal court order and requested that the hearing be commenced on the case.
But the original copy of the Appeal court had not been received by the Mallakam Court. The Actg. Judge, N.Thambithurai said the case could be commenced once the original is received by the Mallakam Court and adjourned the case to 30th of this month.
When this case was taken up last year in the Mallakam Court, the court ordered that the Northern Power Company be closed. Later the company appealed at the Jaffna High Court. But the appeal was rejected. Still later an appeal was filed at the Colombo Appeal Court.
