Sri Lanka's JVP to hold convention to sack dissidents

Sri Lanka Marxist People'e Liberation Front (JVP) will ho;d its general assembly as scheduled tomorrow at Debaraweva in the Hambanthora district.

Colombo district Judge Ranjith N. Warhupola yesterday rejected to issue an injunction against the convention requested by two JVP Central Committee members.

JVP MP Ajith Kumara and Politburo member G. Kularathna cited in their petitions that the JVP general assembly was illegal and aimed at causing injustice to them. They pointed out that the party secretary had submitted a list of members in September to the Election Commissioner comprising 226 members loyal to the leaders. This list is in addition to a list of 954 members earlier submitted.

JVP Somawansa Amarasinghe faction has planned to sack over 10 Central Committee members that belong to the dissident group and appoint a new Central Committee. The general assembly is expected to seal the party division and guarantee the legal ownership to the Somawansa Amarasinghe group.

The District Judge fixed the hearing of petition on January 06 and summoned 22 respondents to appear in court on that day.
