A judgment was given by the three benched of judges in Colombo Supreme Court today ordering to enforce the prevailing law on banned fishing gears from the gazette issued in 2003 according to the act of 1996 no: 02.
This case filed by the National Fisheries Solidarity Movement joining in 2009.01.20 with small scale fishers who represent the Southern Fisheries Organization Galle and the case was handled by Mr. Kalyananda Thiranagama on behalf of the prosecution fisher people’s movement.

This case had been examined twice and this is the last time of examination done by the three benched judges at Supreme Court complex today.

This is a huge victory of small scale fishermen according to SFO coordinator Galle. Mr. Gnanadasa.

This is a great victory for small scale fisher people. This should be given the high publicity as this will give some boost to the ssf and will strengthen their struggle of sustainable fisheries and an alternative fisheries policy.

What a grate victory of fisher people. Congratulations NAFSO and the Friends. You have proven the commitment to the fisher people and their grievances.
Keep it up. Your involvement is highly appreciated by the people. But not the onces who oppress them.
Go ahead!

Who are you to take such actions? I think NGOs have no right to challenge government and the law enforcement.
Who gave you the courage to take such actions?
This can not be accepted.

Kumar, you say this is a great victory. What would you do unless the authorities take any action as supreme court guide them?
I am curious NAFSO take any further action in a such situation. Do you have any other plan to carry forward this victory?
I doubt.

I agree to what some of our friends shared here on future. We need to strategize what is our plan for future unless Govt. take action to law enforcement. This is serious as this was our bad experience and the very reason to NAFSO/SFO go to the courts against the apathy of the authorities. We explore the next steps to follow. Thank you friends for guiding us.
