SC suspends Paddy Marketing Board GM

The Supreme Court on Monday issued an interim order suspending the decision to appoint Saman Palitha Bandara to the post of General Manager of the Paddy Marketing Board until the final hearing and determination of a Fundamental Rights (FR) petition.

The Supreme Court three-judge-Bench comprising Chief Justice K. Sripavan, Priyantha Jayawardena and Anil Goonaratne made this order consequent to a FR petition filed by Upul Shantha Perera the former Deputy General Manager of Paddy Marketing Board.

In his petition, the former Deputy General Manager of Paddy Marketing Board stated that appointment of Saman Palitha Bandara for the post of Paddy Marketing Board is completely illegal since he does not possess the qualifications stipulated in the scheme of recruitment for the post of Paddy Marketing Board.

The petitioner had cited 18 parties including the Paddy Marketing Board, its Chairman and Commissioner General of Agrarian Development as respondents.
