The Supreme Court has named dates for the hearing of two fundamental rights petitions filed stating that certain clauses of the series of Emergency Regulations declared by President Maithripala Sirisena violates fundamental rights.

The Supreme Court decided to take up for hearing these petitions on 5 July.

The Alternative Policy Center had submitted the relevant petition previously.

The Attorney General on behalf of the President, the Defence Secretary retired General Shantha Kottegoda and the Attorney General have been named as respondents in these petitions.

The President declared Emergency subsequent to the Easter Sunday suicide attacks that took place on 21 April.

The petitioners request the Supreme Court to issue a verdict that certain laws included within the Emergency Regulations violate fundamental rights.
