Eviction of Tamil lodgers in Wellawatte

Categories:
 

In June 2007, CPA filed a fundamental rights application in the Supreme Court seeking relief and effective redress in respect of the evacuation of Tamil persons from Colombo and the prevention of Tamil persons from entering and / or staying in any part of Colombo. This was filed in the aftermath of several persons being forcibly rounded up in the Wellawatte police division and taken in buses to an unknown destination by the Police. The matter was supported on the same day and the Supreme Court granted interim relief and issued notice on the Respondents. This is currently pending in courts.
