JO calls for AG’s stance on Vijayakala

The Joint Opposition has requested Speaker of House Karu Jayasuriya to table the stance of the Attorney General on former State Minister Vijayakala Maheswaran following a statement she made favouring the LTTE.

Parliamentarian Prasanna Ranaweera said the Attorney General’s stance on the matter has already been submitted to the Speaker.

MP Ranaweera said the Joint Opposition requested the Speaker to let them express their opinion.

However he charged that the Speaker then claimed he will seek the Attorney General’s interpretation.

The Parliamentarian noted the Attorney General has expressed his views adding now, the Speaker hopes to seek the opinion of the Chief Justice.
