A Tamil-Nadu based attorney-at-law has stated that if Minister Douglas Devananda arrives in Tamil-Nadu with the intent of carrying out protests, the Tamil-Nadu state holds the necessary legal provisions to place the minister under arrest.
It was reported recently that minister Devananda was to remonstrate against the presence of Tamil-Nadu fisherman within Sri Lanka's maritime border.
As part of this initiative the minister was supposed to lead a 5000 strong team to the Rameshwaram area in India.
However the lawyer making this revelation, known as Illan-go-wan stated that a court case against Minister Douglas Dewananda was pending at the Madras High Court on the grounds of homicide charges.
Illan-go-wan went on to say that the minister has not been placed under arrest so far due to the diplomatic immunity provided to him on an inter-state level.
As per the views of Illangowan, if the minister decides to arrive in India and carryout protests his immunity would continue to cease, there by making him liable to arrest.
However speaking to our news team Minister Dewananda stated that nothing would deter his resolve in this regard.
