SC rules against removing Tissa

Tissa-attaThe Supreme Court (SC) has ruled that the expulsion of former UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayake from the United National Party (UNP) is invalid.

In its ruling, the Supreme Court had found that the due process had not been followed when Attanayake’s party membership was cancelled.

Attanayake was removed from the party after he had decided to extend support to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa at the last Presidential election. (Colombo Gazette)
