Facebooktwitterlinkedinrssyoutube

The second petitioner, the Sri Lankan wife of the 1 st petitioner a foreigner, held
tenancies of 3 stalls and two bare land leases from the Kandy Municipal Council at the
Jathika Pola, Tomlin Park. Kandy where she carried on several businesses including that of a cafe.                             The petitioners complain they have been the victims of a relentless and
unceasing series of attempts to deprive the 2nd petitioner of her tenancies and destroy
her business by improper and illegal acts by the 1st to 3rd respondents acting in
collusion, and that the respondents by terminating the 2nd petitioner’s contracts of
tenancies and leases on the grounds of unauthorised structural alterations and use of
stall premises for residence, have violated their fundamental right of equality
guaranteed to them under Article 12 of the Constitution.
