Jaffna Security Forces Commander Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe
on Friday (14.05.2010) assured that stern actions would be taken
against antisocial elements operating in Jaffna with ulterior motive
of disrupting normalcy.
Security Force Commander gave this assurance speaking to representatives
of Jaffna Bar Association during a special meeting organized by
High Court Judge Mr. Vignaraja at the Jaffna Court Complex.
Jaffna Lawyers refrained from attending the courts nearly for two
weeks to show their protest against antisocial elements which are
attempting to threaten even law-enforcing authorities.
However, on assurance given by Jaffna Security Force Commander Major
General Mahinda Hathurusinghe to provide full security to legal
professionals in executing their duties, Bar Association representatives
agreed to resume their work at Courts.
A few Senior Army Officers and nearly thirty Lawyers participated
in the meeting.
