* Colombo Commercial High Court’s fiscal officer interdicted over Aeroflot flight issue
Tue, Jun 7, 2022, 11:25 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 07, Colombo: The fiscal officer of the Colombo Commercial High Court has been suspended over the incident of detaining an aircraft belonging to Russian Aeroflot Airlines at the Bandaranaike International Airport, the Ministry of Justice Prison Affairs and Constitutional Reforms announced.

The Ministry of Justice has taken steps to inform the Chief Justice in writing that it is appropriate to take action against the lawyer who has been charged in connection with this case, said the Coordinating Secretary to the Minister Dasun Nagashena.

The Fiscal Officer is charged with abusing the judicial process when enforcing an interim order, issued by the Colombo Commercial High Court to restrain the Aeroflot Airbus A 330 from departing the Sri Lankan airport.

On 2 June 2022, the Commercial High Court of the Western Province issued an Enjoining Order on the Aeroflot flight restraining it from taking off from Bandaranaike International Airport.

The case related to a commercial dispute between the Plaintiff, Celestial Aviation Trading 10 Limited an Irish Company against the first Defendant the Public Joint Stock Company "Aeroflot" and the second Defendant, Mr. N. C Abeywardene/Acting Head of Air Navigation/Airport and Aviation Services of Sri Lanka (AASL), Katunayake.

The Court Monday rescinded the restraining order and granted permission for the aircraft to fly back to Moscow after the Attorney General filed a motion stating that the matter has inconvenienced passengers, affected the tourism industry and the national economy, and has legal implications.
