The petition was filed by Sanumi Tharindya, a student from Ambalangoda and it was called up in the presence of Justices Sobitha Rajakaruna and Dhammika Ganepola.

Secretary to the Education Ministry Professor Kapila Perera, Chairman of the University Grants Commission Senior Professor Sampath Amaratunga, Commissioner General of Examinations Sanath Pujitha, and the Attorney General were named as respondents in the petition and they too were noticed by the Court of Appeal.
