SC ordered AG to submit report on fuel distribution & priority!

The Supreme Court today (04) informed the Attorney General to submit a report on the 12th of July detailing the purchase of fuel, its distribution, and priority of the supply and distribution.

The order was issued when a Fundamental Rights petition filed by the Bar Association of Sri Lanka seeking a proper mechanism to resolve the hospital and transportation services which are crippled as a result of the fuel crisis, was taken up for consideration today.

The order was issued by a bench comprising justices Vijith Malalgoda, Mahinda Samayawardhana, and Arjuna Obeysekera citing the Prime Minister, the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation, the Ceylon Electricity Board and 37 others as respondents in the case.
