The government states that police and land powers are implemented in any part of the country only within the existing boundaries.

 

Cabinet media spokesperson Minister Keheliya Rabukwalla states that there is a clear stance within the country regarding this.

 

Minister made this statement in reply to a question raised by our news team regarding the verdict given by the Supreme Court recently regarding land powers vested with provincial councils.

 

The Supreme Court determined on Thursday 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.
