May 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka Court of Appeal announced that the judgments on the petitions filed against the rejections of nominations for some local government authorities are to be delivered on May 12.

The verdicts were to be delivered yesterday and a large crowd gathered in the Court of Appeal premises to hear the rulings.

However, the President of the Court of Appeal Judge Sathya Hettige said the verdicts would not be delivered since Judge Upali Abeyratna, a member of the panel of judges that investigated the petitions, was ill.
