COLOMBO (News 1st); The Attorney General has requested the Supreme Court to appoint Full Bench to consider Fundamental Rights applications filed challenging the transfer of shares of Yugadhanavi Plant to the American Company New Fortress Energy Inc.

Previously, the head of Sri Lanka’s Catholic Church His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, and Venerable Elle Gunawansa Thero as well as political activists filed Fundamental Rights Applications with the Supreme Court seeking an order to prevent the transfers of shares of the Yugadanavi Power Plant to New Fortress Inc.

The FR application seeks to make null the decision reached by the Cabinet of Ministers on the said agreement on the 6th of September and prevent the agreement from being enforced until the examination of the application is concluded.
