Government is drawing up plans to launch a new judicial network in the Northern Province.
The Justice Ministry announced that new Judicial Zones have been demarcated to cover the Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu Districts. Plans are afoot to establish a High Court, a Magistrate’s Court and a District Court based in the Kilinochchi Judicial Zone. It is hoped to launch a Magistrate’s Court and a District Court within the Mullaitivu Judicial Zone. The Justice Ministry said that the desire of this exercise is to establish civil administration in areas where the displaced have been resettled.
