An appeal has been filed in the Supreme Court against the court order issued on Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cabinet.
The Appeal Court yesterday issued notice and an interim order against Mahinda Rajapaksa and his Government, preventing them from acting as Prime Minister, Cabinet and Deputy Ministers.
The order was issued in a Quo Warranto case filed by 122 Parliamentarians against Rajapaksa and his new Government.
The respondents were ordered to show by what authority they hold office.
The Court of Appeal ordered 49 members of the new cabinet to appear in court on December 12th to respond to the petition. (Colombo Gazette)
