Enjoining order extended

Colombo District Judge Sampath Wijeratne yesterday extended the enjoining order that restrained Sri Lanka Muslim Congress from suspending the party membership of Deputy Minister K. Abdul Bhais from the SLMC till June 02.

The Court also ordered 26 defendants to file written objections. The UNP filed written objections on an earlier occasion and pleaded to dismiss the case at the initial stage.

The enjoining order also restrained the United National Party from taking action to suspend Deputy Minister sitting in Parliament by informing the Secretary General of the Parliament based on the same suspension of the membership from the SLMC.

Plaintiff Bhais cited 28 defendants including SLMC, its leader Rauf Hakeem, Hassan Ali, UNP and its General Secretary Tissa Attanayake as the respondents.

The Court earlier issued the order when SLMC member and Deputy Minister K. Abdul Bhais filed a plaint before the District Court stating that issuance of a letter on February 24 by SLMC General Secretary Hassan Ali suspending his party membership based on a news item published in a newspaper without any inquiry. So his suspension from the SLMC party membership without inquiry was a total violation of natural justice. The plaintiff further stated that the newspaper carried a correction as the content of the disputed news item was incorrect. The SLMC contested under the UNP banner at the last general election.
