Court annuls Vigneswaran’s circular

( July 14, 2014, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) The Supreme Court today (14) ordered north chief minister C.V. Vigneswaran to annul a circular, which it has found to be violating the fundamental rights of the provincial chief secretary and her staff.

A three member bench headed by chief justice Mohan Peiris considered a FR petition filed by the chief secretary, which alleges the chief minister was interfering in her duties and trying to remove her from the position.

The CJ ordered CM Vigneswaran to propose to the court a solution, appropriate in consideration of national reconciliation, on July 28 with regard to her accusation that he was trying to remove her from the position.
