Two Courts complexes for Nuwara Eliya and Nawalapitiya established at
Rs 440 million will be opened tomorrow by Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva
The Nuwara Eliya Courts Complex which is a four storied building will
consist of a High Court, District Court and a Labour Tribunal. Three
storied Nawalapitiya Courts Complex will consist of a District Court and
a Labour Tribunal.
Justice and Judicial Reforms Ministry Senior Assistant Secretary W.
A. Senarathne said the Nuwara Eliya Courts Complex was built at Rs. 240
million while Rs 200 million was spent on the Nawalapitiya Courts
He said Nuwara Eliya District did not have a High Court and people
from Nuwara Eliya as well as remote areas like Mathurata and
Hanguranketha had to come to the Kandy High Court if they were indicted
or they filed any application before the High Court.
The Magistrate’s Court of Nawalapitiya is situated in a small
building and the Labour Tribunal was held at a private residence. The
establishment of the new Courts Complex with a District Court would help
litigants as well as Judicial Officers and the staff.
