Venerable Elle Gunawansa thera says he is hoping to go to courts over the agreement to be reached pertaining to the Trincomalee Oil tank complex.
Elle Gunawansa thera said the agreement is detrimental to the country and therefore a number of factions are preparing to seek judicial intervention.
The thera said according to their knowledge the agreement is a security threat and they only have the option of seeking court’s intervention to annul the agreement.
Minister of Energy Udaya Gammanpila earlier this week said since the agreement related to the Trincomalee Oil tank complex has received Cabinet approval, they are hoping to sign the deal within the week.
Based on the agreement, a new company will be established to oversee operations of a number of oil tanks in the complex while the Lanka Indian Oil company will be allowed to operate several oil tanks on a long-term basis.
