Eastern Provincial Councilors Boycott Sessions

May 24, 2011 1:57:05 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Eastern Provincial Councilors have today boycotted Council sessions to protest against the recent search operation carried out by the army in the office and residence of Eastern Province Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan alias Pillayan and the arrest of a councilor.

Chandrakanthan office and residence were last week searched by the army in the course of the investigation in to the recent killings that have taken place in the Batticaloa District.

The protesting councilors had also demanded that detained TMVP member and provincial councilor Edwin Silva Krishnanandaraja alias Pradeep Master be presented to court.

According to the councilors the search carried out on Chandrakanthan’s office and residence was illegal as it was done without a court order.
