FR petition against Police for malicious search of Temple

Mar 18, 2010 1:21:22 PM - thecolombotimes.com

Ven. Thiniyawala Palitha Thero, the Chief incumbent of the Nugegoda Nalandaramaya and the Mahabodhi center of Chennai, India filed a fundamental rights petition (FR) in the Supreme Court against the Mirihana Police for searching the Temple allegedly on malicious motives and for a collateral purpose. It is well to recall that Ven. Palitha Thero had  been acting in the public interest on so many occasions filing FR petitions against the Govt. on its hedging soodhuwa which engendered immense loss of public funds; for reduction of electricity tariffs; for reduction of fuel prices and to withdraw three purported environmental levies.
