* Coalition party of Sri Lankan government to file a case to abolish 13th amendment
Sat, Nov 10, 2012, 09:38 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 10, Colombo: Sri Lanka's government coalition party National Freedom Front (NFF) says the party will file a case in the Supreme Court against the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

The NFF will request the courts to abolish the provincial councils established in line with the 13th Amendment.

The case is to be filed in the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka on Monday. NFF sources say that nationalist lawyers S.L. Gunasekera, Gomin Dayasiri and Kapila Gamage are to appear for the case.

NFF leader Minister Wimal Weerawansa told media that the 13th Amendment was passed in 1988 going against the Constitution.

NFF recently joined hands with the nationalist party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) and held a joint press conference to mobilize people to abolish the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
