The service contract of the Principal of Trinity College, Kandy was stayed by courts on Friday.

When the matter pertaining to the court case filed by Bimindra Madugalle vs. the Board of Governors of Trinity College, Kandy was taken up on Friday, President’s Counsel Faiszer Musthapha with Isuru Balapatabendi, instructed by Ranika Nanayakkara appeared for the Plaintiff , Bimindra Madugalle, and made submissions and asked for an Injunction restraining the Board of Governors from appointing the principal for another term.

President’s Counsel Faiszer Musthapha also stated that he objects the proxy filed by the 1st defendant as the Board of Governors of Trinity College has no right to file a proxy without the approval of the board members.

President’s Counsel Harsha Amarasekara, with Kanchana Pieris, instructed by Simon & Associates appeared for the 13th and 15th defendants and made submissions requesting the status quo to remain, ie, the appointment of the principal not to be confirmed.

President’s Counsel Romesh de Silva with Sugath Caldera, instructed by Simon & Associates appeared for the 8th and 14th defendants and he too made submissions requesting the status quo to remain, ie, the appointment of the principal not to be confirmed.

Maneesh Senevirathne filed proxies for the 1st, 2nd 3rd , 4th and 10th defendants and filed their objections.

The Counsel who appeared for these defendants took a preliminary objection with regard to the jurisdiction of this case as it is filed in Colombo.

President’s Counsel Faiszer Musthapha, objected to this and stated that DC Case No: 140/13 was also filed in the District court of Colombo. Court granted the status quo to remain.

The matter will be taken up on May 8 for objections and submissions to be made.
