The Court of Appeal fixed dates today to hear a petition which seeks a writ to remove all unauthorized structures which have been built within the Wilpattu Forest Reserve from the beginning.

The petition filed by Parisara Yukthi Kendraya in 2015 was first heard before Appeal court judge, Mahinda Samayawardana and the judgment is to be announced on August 6th.

However, the petition will be heard again before Justices Janak de Silva and Nissanka Bandula Karunarathna from July 31st.

Parisara Yukthi Kendraya complained that an unrecoverable environmental damage has been done by clearing Wilpattu forest reserve and putting up unauthorized houses within the cleared land.

Therefore, the petitioner requested the court to rule the clearing of the dense forest is illegal and issue a writ to remove the already put up houses.

Minister Rishard Baduideen, Director of the Forest Department, central environment authority and five others have been named as respondents.
