The Court of Appeal has put off inquiring into the petition filed by the JVP citing 193 offences committed by Kumaran Pathmanathan alias KP, a senior leader of the LTTE, and to reveal what happened during Mahinda Rajapaksa regime to 7 ships, foreign assets, gold, foreign accounts KP said to have possessed.
Appeal Court Judge Vijith Malalgoda ordered that the petition is reconvened on 17th March, 2017.
The petition was filed by the Information Secretary of the JVP Vijitha Herath and the IGP and several others have been named as respondents.
The petitioners say the police intentionally avoid arresting and bringing before Court Kumaran Pathmanathan in connection with LTTE atrocities.
When the petition was taken up yesterday (15th) the Additional Solicitor General Kapila Waiddyarathna told Court the relevant investigations are being carried out by the CID and Terrorist Investigation Division (TID).
As such it was not necessary to inquire into the petition the Deputy Solicitor General has pointed out and accordingly the inquiry into the petition was put off.
