A division bench in the Madras High Court bench dismissed a public interest litigation filed seeking the declaration of the Sri Lankan High Commissioner to India as an unwelcome person as per Article 9 of the Vienna Convention of Diplomatic Relations, 1961, on the grounds that the petition is not maintainable.

In their order, Justices M. Jaichandren and S. Vaidyanathan observed, “Directions relating to foreign policies and with regard to diplomatic relationships involving foreign countries cannot be issued by this court.

It is for the Union of India to consider and to decide such issues as policy decisions.

According to the petitioner, Kariyawasam issued a statement on March 19, 2013, that the Sinhalese were descendants of Odiyas and Bengalis and, therefore, they deserve Indian support.

The judges ruled that the Union of India cannot be directed by the court to make certain decisions relating to foreign policies of India.
