President's counsel, Faizer Mustapha, representing the petitioners in the case concerning the dismissal of Ministers Manusha Nanayakkara and Harin Fernando from the Samagi Jana Balavegaya political party, has asserted that the documents submitted by the party are fake.
Mustapha urged the court not to accept these documents during the ongoing legal proceedings.
He informed the court of a significant contradiction between the documents related to the statement of objection submitted by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya and the documents submitted in the initial motion regarding the expulsion of the two ministers from the party.
The legal representative of the petitioners argued that a meeting report linked to the removal of the ministers had been presented by the Samagi Jana Balawegaya through a motion. They claimed that this report had been created and submitted after the case had commenced, suggesting potential manipulation of the documents.
Given these concerns, a request has been made to the court to issue an order rejecting the contested documents. The court has stated that a decision will be reached after thorough deliberation.
Legal experts have pointed out that presenting fake documents to the court could result in a case of contempt of court, adding a new layer of complexity to the ongoing proceedings related to the ministers' expulsion from the Samagi Jana Balavegaya.
