Apr 21, Colombo: Colombo District Chief Magistrate Laffar Naheer has asked the Main Opposition UNP Leader Ranil Wickremasinghe and party's General Secretary Tissa Attanayake to show cause before July 18 for the undated resignation letters obtained from the UNF candidates.
The Magistrate has asked the two party leaders why the undated resignation letters that have been obtained from candidates of the UNP led UNF at the 2010 general election should not be deemed null and void.
The Court had issued the directive when a petition filed against the party's decision to request for undated resignation letters from the candidates filed by controversial UNP Moneragala District MP-elect Ranjith Madduma Bandara and candidate Ananda Kumarasiri was taken up for hearing on Monday (19).
Ranjith Madduma Bandara filed a case against the UNP for accusing him of allegedly altering the Moneragala District nominations list and sought legal redress to invalidate the undated resignation letters taken by the party from all UNP candidates at the 2010 general election.
