The Supreme Court today determined that land powers are vested with the Central Government and not with the Provincial Councils.

 

The ruling was given by the three-member bench of the Supreme Court comprising Chief Justice Mohan Peiris, Justice Sri Pavan and Justice Eva Wanasundara after considering an appeal filed by an individual from Kandy.

 

Despite the bench delivering independent decision on the case, all three agreed that according to the 13th Amendment that land powers were vested with the Central Government.
