CEB summoned before courts on April 9

Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) officials have been issued summons to appear before the Fort Magistrate’s Court on April 9 following a lawsuit filed by the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) which was supported yesterday over the illegal power interruptions.

Lawyers appearing for the PUCSL told the Daily News that they had filed a case since the CEB had failed to comply with the Commission Act by communicating daily generation reports.

“The last generation report received by PUCSL was on May 28th, 2018. CEB has also not communicated its power interruption either,” lawyers said. “The case was supported yesterday and officials from the CEB have been summoned to appear before courts on April 9.”

The lawyers added that had the CEB communicated its daily generation reports power interruptions could have been predicted and mitigated.
